Association Internationale du Film d’Animation, or ASIFA, was started in France in 1960 as a membership animation organization for artists with over 50 chapters around the world. ASIFA-Atlanta, started in 1995 is the only chapter in the South offers animation screenings and educational programs year-round.

ASIFA-SOUTH expanded from ASIFA-ATLANTA in 2016 with its official debut at the Atlanta Film Festival. Our mission is promoting artist visibility, support of steam education, entrepreneurship for artists, and to expand inclusion. Our animation organization has two signature annual screenings. ASIFA-SOUTH Animation Conference and Festival, showcasing local animation made in the south and throughout the world; and also International Animation Day, a screening of carefully chosen international animation in participation of ASIFA chapters around the world.
