There are over 30 ASIFA children
workshops throughout the world, where children are aided in making animated
films. Instructors are typically animators from around the globe and some
productions include inernational collaborations. Students are thus introduced
to animation from the inside and they are introduced to international
understanding in the process.
year ASIFA promotes an international ASIFA Workshop Group (AWG) that encourages
children to prepare an animated film for presentation. The AWG 2003/2004
project will premiere at the Hiroshima Animation Festival (
August 19-23, 2004
). This is the first year
ASIFA-Colorado will join AWG.
