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.
Please note: Our Awards Ceremony will be held in the NEW Tishman Auditorium at 63 Fifth Avenue, at the Northeast corner of 13th Street and 5th Avenue.

The Awards Ceremony and Reception afterwards are free and open to the public. We would appreciate the donation of $5 from non-members to help us continue serving the animation community in New York area and beyond.
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 jury screenings in March. Only current ASIFA-East members are permitted to vote for the winning films. The votes are sealed and tallied by an independent accountant and announced at a special awards ceremony in the Spring.
To learn more about the festival, please read our former President David B. Levy’s article, a wonderfully informative, behind the scenes look at ASIFA-East.
