Since the establishment of ASIFA and the first international animation festival it organized, the self-improvement of the festivals of this kind has played an indispensable role in the inheritance and promotion of animation art, urging the continuous development of animation practitioners and the industry.

These years have witnessed the birth and demise of countless animation festivals. Thus, by making this categorized directory, we intend to express our heartfelt expectations that animation festivals remain true to their original aspirations, focusing on the festivals themselves and the development of animators; we also hope to remind both those involved in animations and audiences to treasure and protect genuine and marvelous festivals from disappearing or being overshadowed by those nominal ones.

This directory will be updated regularly based on our constant observation. However, we must admit that we could numerate all the excellent animation festivals. If any festival intends to be listed in this directory, please feel free to contact us so that we could have more opportunities to get to know each other.

※Note: A, B, C, D only represent the categories of festivals, not their ratings.
