The Association International Due Film D’ Animation (ASIFA) invited us to be special guests for their month mixer at the JoyStick GameBar. A cozy hip space for drinks, games and good times.
ASIFA was started in France in 1960 as a membership animation organization for artists, and now has over 50 chapters around the world. ASIFA-Atlanta (ASIFA South) started in 1995 and is the only chapter in the South. They offer animation screenings and educational programs year-round.
On July 25, 2018 we did a special presentation talking about who we are and what we do. It was a great chance to create new connections and continue to build our talented community. It was a great turnout and we had a good time.
The attendees of various backgrounds and expertise were curious of the type of work we do and were inspired by the activities that we have participated including working with non-profit organizations, creating original content & characters, starting social media movements, and doing positive work getting involved in community development.

This mixer also provided an excellent #PVSketch Challenge opportunity. Everyone busted out their pens & pencils to scribble down something cool.
