|About Hiroshima International Animation Festival|
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. The creation of this festival was largely due to the earnest efforts of the two animation filmmakers --- Renzo Kinoshita, who at that time was serving as a Board Member of ASIFA and the President of ASIFA-Japan, and Sayoko Kinoshita, who was serving as the General Secretary of ASIFA-Japan. Sayoko has been the festival director since the first edition, dedicating herself to lay foundation of this festival until today, and is now also the Vice-President of ASIFA and President of ASIFA-Japan.
Hiroshima Festival is a comprehensive animation festival, featuring competition programs to choose the Grand Prize, Hiroshima Prize and other prizes out of many latest animation shorts submitted from around the world. The festival also offers many special programs including retrospectives of masters and talented filmmakers, feature animations, high quality student works, animations for peace, for children, as well as seminars, symposiums, workshops, exhibitions, and educational film market. Furthermore, the festival provides free spaces, such as "Frame In" for animation students and "Nexus Point" for animation professionals, to screen their works, make presentations and exchange ideas. With its outstanding international programs and administration, the festival is highly recognized not only within animation field but also throughout the media art society.
On the occasion of the sixteenth edition HIROSHIMA 2016, the competition attracted 2,248 entries from 78 countries and regions, and 33,129 people participated during the five days of the festival.
Hiroshima Festival continues to contribute ceaselessly as a festival respecting animation filmmakers in the first place, and also to serve as a gateway to success for world-class professionals.
