The Animation Society of India (TASI) is joining hands with the Goa government’s Entertainment Society of Goa (ESG) to curate a special segment on Animation at the upcoming International Film Festival of India (IFFI) 2009.
It is a first for the festival and TASI has plans to not only have a retrospective on Indian animated films, showcasing nearly 50 films produced in India but also various other special programmes to take animation to the broader spectrum of people who will be attending IFFI.
Team TASI has already chosen a panel of experts to speak on various different aspects of animation and I will be putting up details here on the blog once the TASI committee and ESG finalize the list of speakers and presentations.
For The Animation Society of India this is just one of the many endeavours it has undertaken to promote Animation and animators in India. Their monthly workshops/sessions are very popular amongst students and professionals alike and their annual “Anifest India” animation festival is already in its 5th year now.
The International Film Festival of India kick starts in Goa on November 23rd.
