International Animation Day

International Animation Day (IAD) - October 28th

On October 28th, 1892, a French inventor Emile Reynaud (1844 - 1918) made the first public performance of animation at the Grevin Museum in Paris, using his own invention "optical theater".

In 2002, ASIFA (Association Internationale du Film d' Animation, registered in Annecy, France) decided to celebrate this historic day as "International Animation Day (IAD)", aiming to promote and develop animation art all over the world. ASIFA National Groups started to hold the celebration on and around October 28th, as a “simultaneous" manifestation in various countries. 

ASIFA-JAPAN also decided to join this international art manifestation in 2005, and has been participating since then.
This year, “IAD 2021 in KYOTO” will be held in reality at Kyoto University of the Arts, as a special class, aimed for their students, faculty members, etc. ( In case the corona virus situation will improve in November, we may be able to hold it as an extension class, which will be open to public. )

Celebrating the ASIFA 60 years and ASIFA-JAPAN 40 years, we will be screening “ASIFA-JAPAN vol.1”
( https://asifa.jp/en/dvd/index_vol1.html ), and also, we will be inviting Michael Dudok de Wit from London to hold an online lecture on his filmmaking. Before the lecture, two films will be shown at the venue.

This year’s official IAD poster was created by Maryam Mohajer, a member of ASIFA Iran, and it will be used around the world.
