ASIFA-Hollywood Animation Students League

I have been charged by the Board of Directors of ASIFA-Hollywood to organize and provide services to the student members of ASIFA-Hollywood. There are currently over 200 student members of the organization. Let's begin a dialogue over what ASIFA can do for its student members, and what its student members can do for ASIFA-Hollywood.


Jean Francois de Troy, "Reading from Moliere" 1728

To get the ball rolling, I am instituting a series of screenings at Woodbury University in Burbank, the first of which will take place as part of the ASIFA-Hollywood Student Animation Festival. This series will be aimed at professionals and students of the medium, and will consist of informal discussions on topics related to animation filmmaking. We'll have guest speakers, rare films from the ASIFA-Hollywood Animation Archive, panel discussions, audience participation and networking sessions. The goal is to create an animation salon to bring together the creative spirit of the animation community and foster the interaction of the student membership of ASIFA-Hollywood.

The first program, which will take place on October 18th at 10 am will address a fundamental question...

What is an animated film?

For an idea of what this program will deal with, see my current post on the ASIFA-Hollywood Animation Archive site...

If you can, please print out this info or forward it via email to other animation students you may know. Everyone is welcome to attend. There will be panel discussions, portfolio reviews and other activities throughout the day.

ASIFA-Hollywood is committed to supporting our student members. If you have any ideas for what we can be doing as a sub-group of the membership of ASIFA, email me at, and I will pass your suggestions along to the Animation Students' League and the Board of ASIFA-Hollywood.
