Anifest India 2008 received an overwhelming response from volunteers. The final team of 56 was lead by Devang Parikh. This group ensured a smooth and trouble free festival by efficiently running and managing the operational aspects of the event.
Anifest India 2008 was held on the 15th, 16th and 17th of August ‘08. This is a community driven event, which means that volunteers are the backbone of this festival. Enthusiastic and trustworthy people shoulder various responsibilities through the event.
Volunteers are the grease of TASI’s gears. People in ALL capacities right from organizing the stage, to being hall marshals, to assisting speakers, to updating the website, managing publicity and PR make sure that the event is a huge success every year. As expected, this year too we put up an event worth remembering. A bonafide “Certificate of Appreciation” was given to all those who contributed their time and services.
Anifest India 2008 was organised at the picturesque IIT, Powai campus in Mumbai on 15,16 & 17 August.
A new attraction was the ‘Sanskritik Rangarang Karyakram’ for added excitement and fun. It featured, dumb charades by members of the audience and live Indian classical dance performances by members of the Volunteer team.
The TVCA Awards which are unique to Anifest India also saw some additions with the introduction of a new category for Commissioned Films! All pre-selected films for the competition were screened for the audience.
Commissioned Films include animated ad films, promos, packaging, music videos and public service films. 224 entries were received and the the pre-selection was done on Aug. 10th, 2008 by a panel of experienced industry professionals.
