Organization // ASIFA Hollywood
ASIFA-Hollywood encourages the art of animation and furthers international understanding and goodwill through our animation archive, educator\\\\\\\'s forum, animation aid society, film preservation efforts, studio and independent screenings, and the annual Annie Awards, recognizing the best in animation, world-wide.
We are the Los Angeles chapter of the international organization, ASIFA: The International Animated Film Society. Founded by a group of animators in 1957, and chartered by UNESCO in 1960, ASIFA encourages the art of animation and futhers international understanding and goodwill through the medium. Today, there are about thirty chapters of ASIFA all over the globe. ASIFA is a French acronym… “Association Internationale du Film D’Animation”.
ASIFA- Hollywood was established over thirty years ago as a 501(c)(3) California non-profit organization. It is the largest chapter of ASIFA in the world. We are self-sustaining through our membership dues and the proceeds from our various projects and events.
