EVENT: 46th Annual Asifa-East Animation Awards Ceremony May 17th

Attention New Yorkers: ASIFA-East will hold its 46th Annual Animation Festival Awards Ceremony on Sunday, May 17th, 2015. 

Awards will be given out across a variety of categories and craft from student, commercial, and independent entries to excellence in writing, design, and animation.

Debuting in 1969, the ASIFA-East Animated Film Festival is one of the 
longest running festivals of its kind.  The festival is a unique 
showcase for the most groundbreaking independent and commercial 
animation being produced in the industry today.  Every February, 
entries are submitted and judged during special screenings juried by 
the ASIFA-East membership. The winning films are presented and 
screened at the awards ceremony. The exciting evening continues with a 
lively reception, where award winners, members of the industry, and 
lovers of animation can meet one another, enjoy a few refreshments, 
and network. 

Codename Kids Next Door Creator, Tom Warburton, will host this year’s 
festival.  Headlining sponsors include Cartoon Network, Cartoon Brew, 
CelAction, and BatteryPop. We are excited to announce that Women In 
Animation is taking part in our ceremony and will be awarding two 
women, one student and one independent filmmaker, for their excellence 
in animation filmmaking. Each award will be a membership to WIA, and a 
$50 gift certificate to go toward a future film festival entry fee. 
Our first prize Independent Filmmaker will receive two Animapasses to 
the amazing Ottawa International Animation Festival in Canada, being 
held this September 16-20th. 

The Awards Ceremony will be held in The New School’s Tishman 
Auditorium at 63 Fifth Avenue at 6pm. There will be a reception 
directly after the ceremony at Wollman Hall, located on the 5th floor 
at 65 West 11th Street. Please visit http://www.asifaeast.com for all
