Dear Friends,

With your kind cooperation, we are very pleased to announce that the 18th International Animation Festival in Japan – HIROSHIMA 2020 will be held from August 20th to 24th this summer.

 It is only with your warm and encouraging support for many years that we have been able to hold our manifestation every two years, since its first edition in 1985 till today, with the spirit of pursuing world peace, shared by both the City of Hiroshima and the Association International du Film d’Animation (ASIFA). On behalf of our festival team, I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to all of you.

 Through promoting the art of animation, we aim to encourage cross-cultural communication beyond language, as well as to develop all kinds of art and cultures. It is our sincere hope that we receive many entries to HIROSHIMA 2020.

 Also, we, the festival team, are working hard for the preparation to welcome all of you at the festival venue in August. We look forward to your inspirational entries, and to your participation in person in HIROSHIMA 2020!

 Thank you very much for your continued support to our Festival.

Sincerely yours,

Sayoko Kinoshita
Festival Director
