Screen Queensland in partnership with Asian Animation Summit (AAS) is calling for Queensland animation projects to be presented at the AAS @Kidscreen Summit Virtual, 7-11 March 2022.

Asian Animation Summit is a unique showcase for producers of new animated series for children seeking finance and/or production partners. It has launched a number of Queensland-created series, including Balloon Barnyard (Like A Photon Creative), The Strange Chores and Bluey (Ludo Studio).

Two Queensland projects will be selected to participate in the showcase or development program of AAS @Kidscreen Summit Virtual 2022.

Applicants must meet the AAS eligibility criteria for the showcase or development program.

Selected projects and their creators/producers will be supported through a bespoke mentoring program to be held in November, December and January to prepare and polish their 3-5 minute pre-recorded pitch presentations.

The final presentations will be showcased early in the Kidscreen Summit Virtual program, reaching an estimated 1,800 delegates, including key senior international decision-makers.

Following the online showcase, those presenting will receive a curated program of 4 (development) or 6 (showcase) meetings with VIP senior decision-makers drawn from an international pool of broadcasters, streamers and distributors.

The successful teams will also receive up to two complimentary passes for Kidscreen Virtual Summit 2022, allowing them to watch all the events – live or on-demand – and have full access to the KidscreenXchange.

Asian Animation Summit is owned and produced by Kidscreen with the support of a number of partners in the Asia Pacific region. You can read more about AAS on the Kidscreen website.
