The Asia Animation Forum (AAF) intends to rediscover the value of Asian animation and establish a global network to promote further cooperation in the fields of education, creation, ind ustry, and policy. The AAF2016 seeks to explore the meaning of animation in the various aspects of imagination. Imagination and creativity blur the boundaries between art, media, and genre and extend the areas of animation limitlessly. Today, animation, the collective of imagination is omnipresent.


We invite proposals related to the following 3 categories below for 20 minute presentations within the topic “Animation+ Collective of Imagination”.

Proposals may include topics in the various aspects of humanities, technology, education, policy, industry, and creation:

■ Creative Imagination : Technology, Aesthetics

This program not only searches for a variety of application areas of animation which is steadily expanding in the interaction process of the creative imagination and high-technology, but also seeks the new aesthetic value.

■ Collective Imagination : Culture, Identity

This program explores the (trans)national and artistic identities as well as (cross-)culture of many different Asian countries based on the collective imagination embodied in animation.

■ Convergent Imagination : Education, Policy, Industry

This program considers the present and the future of the animation education, policy or industry which are requiring the convergent imagination.
