Is this event for children?

A common misconception is that animation is always made for children. Most animations are created by adult professionals. So, it is not always safe to assume that the content will be appropriate and/or intended for children to view. Unless specified in the description of an event, animations screened during any animated film events could contain content that may not be deemed suitable for children. However, ASIFA-South will often give verbal warnings before more mature content is presented to the audience, usually at the end of less controversial content, and a parent or guardian may wait with children outside if they choose. If you do not hear a warning during the event, please find a staff member to assist you and we will be glad to help. Also, feel free to contact with questions about any film segments before you purchase a ticket.

Where do I go to pick up my tickets?

Bring your e-mail confirmation to the theater and ASIFA-South will give each attendee a stamp OR a wristband to enter the event.

Where can I find theater and parking information?
