2022 theme: "The evolution of the global animation market"

The 2022 program theme encompasses the evolution of the industry, especially as the environment and social justice have taken even more prevalent roles not just in the animation industry but within society as a whole.

Welcome to the
Animation Summit

The animation summit is a global summit  hosted by UCLA and Truffle Time.  The focus of the conference is to broaden the understanding of animation as an asset class.

Additionally, the summit serves as a non-sales, industry exchange about the issues affecting animation and the potential impact animation can play in shaping the world's challenges.

(Realizing webinar fatigue could be a factor after 2 years of COVID, the Animation Summit will be broadcast in smaller panels on multiple days as opposed to two full days.)
