Does the membership extend to other ASIFA Chapters?

While currently the benefits of our membership is limited to only our chapter, we are working to get inclusive benefits with the other chapters all over the world so that our traveling animators may be able to attend ASIFA hosted events all over the world. If you are traveling though, please do hit us up so we can see if we can get you in touch with chapters in that location or let you know if a chapter exists so we can hook you up with the cool animation/ artist community there!

Is the organization meant for kids?

While our organization does a lot of workshops and activities that are geared towards benefiting kids, we are advocates of promoting artists/ animators of all ages. Most of our members are currently high school students to industry professionals in support of the industry. We encourage parents to join for memberships on behalf of their kids and look out for activities that their kids may join in!
