Animahenasyon 2013 – taking you to the next level of Animation festivities

Animahenasyon 2013 Poster

Now on its 7th year, Animahenasyon has become the premier animation festival in the Philippines. Animahenasyon, an initiative of the Animation Council of the Philippines, Inc. (ACPI) binds itself to discover new talents, introduce new animation concepts and mind tickling animation films. ACPI is calling all aspiring and professional animators here and abroad to participate and submit their animated works to Animahenasyon 2013: 7th Philippine Animation Festival, as it formally opens and accepts entries to this year’s festival. Entry forms may be downloaded from the ACPI web site at <http://www.animahenasyon.com>. The deadline for submission of entries is on September 27, 2013.

Highlighting the animation festivities are the Lifetime Achievement Awards, a recognition and tribute given to an individual who has shown exemplary contribution in the animation industry. Recognition is also given to an Emerging Artist who submits a highly commended animation film.

This year, ACPI has also partnered with the Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) for the 39th Metro Manila Film Festival – New Wave section to launch its 1st ever animation category. MMDA Chairman Tolentino expresses his desire to create a platform for Filipino animators’ talents to be showcased through this category in the festival.

Animahenasyon 2013 will be held in West Visayas State University in Iloilo City from November 19 to 22.

In an effort to build an audience, awareness and development of original contents, ACPI puts together its flagship project through an annual animation festival called Animahenasyon that showcases original animated works of both aspiring and professional animators in the country through a competition.

The festival is composed of the professional and the student/amateur divisions that will have different running time categories: 1 to 5 minutes; 6 to 20 minutes, 21 to 60 minutes, and the full-animated feature (more than 60 minutes). There are also categories for music video, title sequence, public information, demo reel, and TV series. There will also be animated works in exhibition (full-length, special citation, and past Animahenasyon winners).

Animahenasyon serves as a venue for Filipino animators to present their world-class ideas, and opens doors of opportunities for them to meet with and be inspired by the finest names in the industry. It also aims to create greater awareness of the Philippine animation industry and its contributions to the global entertainment business, while tapping locally produced content for promotion in animation markets here and abroad.

As an organized body, ACPI aims to promote the Filipino talent both locally and internationally. With the cooperation of its members as well as the Philippine government, it is envisioned that the member studios and schools will be considered competitive both creatively and technologically.
