ASIFA (Association Internationale du Film d’Animation) was established in 1960 in Annecy, France devoted to cultivating and promoting the art, craft and profession of Animation. Each year, children around the world, in 23 countries and on 4 continents create animations based on a common theme and this year Harrogate Film Festival is taking part. The ASIFA Workshops Group (AWG) is a group of artist-teachers who believe that animation can help children express their creativity and tell their own stories.

This year’s theme is 'Cooking – Food from your Country’ and we’re going to make 2 minute drawn animated sequence over 2 days! that is under two-minutes. We can bring together the very best of Harrogate’s fine cuisine to show the nation’s food!

Led by expert animator and storyboard artist, David Bunting, (Dennis & Gnahser Unleashed!, The Tigger Movie) this workshop is sure to be a hit!

A soundtrack will be created in our SFX workshop and the completed animation shown on the big screen at Harrogate Film Festival. The film then goes to Belgium for assembly into the compilation film. The premiere takes place in Lisbon and we will have travel packages to go!

Bon appetit!
