Toronto, Canada -- The first annual Asian Animation Summit (AAS) will present 36 new animated TV projects from producers in Australia, Malaysia, Korea and Singapore.
Taking place in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on December 10 & 11, the event is designed to stimulate co-production and co-financing by showcasing these early-stage concepts to an audience of potential co-producers, broadcasters, distributors and investors from Asia and also the international market.
The 36 projects that are part of the AAS program have been carefully selected based on global-market potential and quality, and they fall into two distinct categories:
Fully developed projects that have already raised at least 15% of their budgets, and are seeking further financing through broadcaster pre-sales and/or co-production, co-financing and distribution arrangements.
