ABOUT THE MARKET
ASIAN ANIMATION SUMMIT – VIRTUAL EDITION
16-27 November 2020, Online | WEBSITE
The ninth-annual Asian Animation Summit was originally intended as a live event in Bali, Indonesia this November. Due to widespread travel restrictions and health & safety issues related to COVID-19, the event is postponed until 2021. Instead, the Asian Animation Summit has produced a virtual event designed to introduce brand-new animation projects from Asia-Pacific to the international marketplace. The experience will be different, but the goal is the same—to showcase the region’s strongest animated projects looking for investors and partners.
The below recipients have been supported by Screen Queensland to pitch at the 2020 Asian Animation Summit – Virtual Edition.
