Founded in 1957 as the Association Internationale Du Film D’Animation (ASIFA), this organization is “devoted to the encouragement and dissemination of film animation as an art and communication form”. Not surprisingly, the ASIFA branch in Hollywood has a particularly keen interest in preserving film animation of all stripes and their website has hosts of compelling information about their work and related activities. Visitors may wish to start their exploration of the site by looking through the Annie Awards section of the site. This area details the past (and current) winners of these film animation awards since their inception in 1972. There is, of course, copious information about upcoming animation releases along with a number of helpful links to like-minded sites. Finally, all visitors should take a look at the ASIFA-Hollywood Animation Archive offered here. Organized as a blog, the site contains image galleries of the work of such animators as Ernesto Garcia Cabral and others.
