Hiroshima 2012 | 14th International Animation Festival | call for entries


On the theme of 'Love & Peace' entries are invited for the 14th International Animation Festival in Hiroshima, taking place August 23-27 2012.

Hiroshima International Animation Festival is a biennial manifestation held in Hiroshima City in August, endorsed by Association Internationale du Film d'Animation (ASIFA). Under the spirit of LOVE & PEACE, the festival has been dedicating to the advancement of visual media art culture in general, by promoting international cross-cultural exchanges through the development of animation art.

Organizers: Hiroshima International Animation Festival Organizing Committee, Hiroshima City, Hiroshima City of the Future Foundation
Co-organizer: ASIFA-Japan (Association International du Film d'Animation - Japan Branch)

Together with those festivals held in Annecy, Ottawa and Zagreb, the Hiroshima Festival is considered as one of the most respected animation festivals in the world.

Hiroshima International Animation Festival was established in 1985, as a project commemorating the 40th anniversary of the atomic bombing. From the beginning, Hiroshima City and ASIFA shared a same idea, that is, to promote the international mutual understanding and to pursue eternal world peace through the development of animation art, which is a medium common to all human beings beyond nations and languages.
