HOME FORUM Asia Animation Forum Overview



The Asia Animation Forum (AAF) is an international academic event held annually in Bucheon, Korea. The AAF intends to rediscover the value of Asian animation and establishes a global network to promote further cooperation in the fields of aesthetic, education, creation, industry, and policy.

The visual image of today, animation realm permeates the various media from art to mass media. Furthermore, it blurred the genre and extends the areas of contemporary media limitlessly. The expanded senses and the sensational illusion stimulate our neuron through the optic nerve. Animation is the core of visual image perception by its own creativity and also its intrinsic value. The AAF 2017 seeks to explore the meaning of animation in the various aspects of the senses. We hope that the forum will inspire a wide range of the intellectual curiosity and productive discussions about the animation domain fulfilling the infinite possibilities. In addition, the academic venue will allow all the participants to discuss the expanded senses of animation with a boundless liberty.
