Overall, approximately 250 attendees are expected to take part in Asian Animation Summit 2017. Roughly 50% of the projects that debuted at previous AAS events have since gone into production, including Bottersnikes & Gumbles (2012), Kuu Kuu Harajuku (2013), Wonderballs (2012) and Balloon Barnyard (2014). Last year’s event, meanwhile, saw a boost in digital presence from the likes of YouTube Kids’ content partnerships manager Sanoop Luke and Dominque Bazay, director of content acquisitions at Netflix Kids.

AAS is owned and produced by Kidscreen, with support from hosting partners Screen Queensland and Brisbane Marketing; presenting partners KOCCA (Korea), MDEC (Malaysia) and DEPA/DITP (Thailand); and supporting partner AINAKI (Indonesia).  For more information about the event please visit
