  1. The sessions sound great, but i wanted to know whether 500rs is going to be charged for each day or one gets a valid pass for all the three days for just 500rs? And too much animation will make me hungry so the food and snacks comes with the pass or do I have to trouble my mother?

    1. Hi DJ,

      The pass (Rs.500 for professionals and Rs.250 for students) is actually getting you a temporary membership of TASI just for the event – as Anifest India is an only members event. It includes entry for all 3 days and lunch+tea+snacks so you do not have to trouble your mother :)

      Hope you have already got your pass – and do bring your friends along – there are just few days left for registering with the early bird discount! Spread the word around…

      See you at Anifest India 2011. Cheers!
      Team TASI

    1. Hi Kishen ,
      Glad to know of your interest in being a part of TASI.
      Currently TASI doesn’t have company membership. We only have individual memberships in the categories of student, professional and life. You may choose what applies to you and register at the earliest. Hope to see you at the fest.

  4. apart of this sessions wht else is there in this anifest is there anykind of exhibition or other information avaialble as we would be coming from surat specially for this so looking forward for more than sessions…….. so please update

    1. Hi Kishan,
      Anifest India is a purely educational event where everyone gets to learn, meet other animators and interact with people from the industry and from across the country. It is an informal, friendly place where you get to enjoy while you learn new stuff. Don’t you think that itself is a good enough reason to attend? :) There is no exhibition or expo. at Anifest India.

  6. I am From Gujarat, and I will be mumbai on 26th August. can I attend TVCA through registration on Venue from 2nd Day?

    1. Sure Bharg, just make sure you are at the venue a little early. If you face any problem ask for me. Look forward to seeing you at the festival :)
      Team TASI

    1. Yes, Kishan. You can get membership at the registration counter itself. But to save time and the last minute rush, you could also get your membership beforehand. The form is available online – go to the JOIN TASI page. Follow the procedure mentioned and contact Ravish – He will guide you.
