Celebrating the International Animation Day (IAD) 2013 !

On behalf of ASIFA-JAPAN, I am most delighted to be able to celebrate the International Animation Day (IAD) - October 28th -, again this year, together with all of you around the world "simultaneously".

It is already more than ten years since ASIFA inaugurated the International Animation Day in 2002.

This year, ASIFA-JAPAN was pleased to make a new exchange program DVD "ASIFA-JAPAN Vol.3", composed of our members' high quality animation shorts, which will be shown in "IAD 2013 in TOKYO" as well as abroad. It is one of main aims of International Animation Day to promote cross-cultural exchanges through the art of animation. I truly hope that many people will join our celebration and, on this occasion, enjoy the variety of expressions created in animation art.

Looking forward to your participation to IAD 2013 !

Sayoko Kinoshita
Vice-President of ASIFA, President of ASIFA-JAPAN
