In autumn 2015, “New Chitose Airport International Animation Festival 2015” featuring animation gathered from around the world, will be held in the terminal building of New Chitose Airport, the gateway of Hokkaido to the world and also well known as an entertainment airport.
Despite the last festival which was held the first time, the competition received applications from no less than 46 countries/regions, invited tens of guests and drew an audience of approximately 30 thousand during the festival. The airport is equipped with all the facilities required to stage the festival, such as a conference hall, accommodation facility and spa facility, resulting in the world’s first self-contained “airport film festival.”
The 2nd festival will include an Animation Short Film Competition with a 1 million yen grand-prix, screenings featuring invited guests and other various programs. We welcome your application and look forward to seeing you at New Chitose Airport!
