Wild Card program opens AAS to more Asian countries
Kidscreen will once again be running a Wild Card program to give more animation producers a chance to get into the Asian Animation Summit showcase and present their projects live at the event. We’re currently accepting project submissions from producers operating anywhere in Asia or Australasia other than Australia, Korea, Thailand and Malaysia, which are covered by our screen agency partners.
Check out our Wild Card Eligibility Criteria and detailed instructions for preparing project submission packages. You can send them to Kidscreen Publisher Jocelyn Christie (firstname.lastname@example.org) until Friday, September 30.
Once this window closes, Kidscreen’s esteemed editorial team will review all of the project submissions received, selecting as many as four to be included in the Asian Animation Summit showcase and presented live at the event.
