Asian Festival of Children's Content 2020

The Asian Festival of Children’s Content (AFCC) returns from 3 - 4 October 2020 in a new digital format, and celebrates the theme “Voyages”.

This edition of the AFCC aims to traverse boundaries, redefine narratives and discover new truths, as it seeks new avenues of sharing Asian stories for children and young adults.

AFCC 2020 will present a plethora of online programmes consisting of industry-focused sessions such as pitching sessions with publishers and network commissioners, panel discussions and masterclasses. Learn more about the sessions here.
