From the Organizer

By subsidizing travel expenses, we were able to invite creators who will be instrumental to the next generation of each region, and the support of the costs of the showing hall, video conversion, and MA equipment that had not previously fit within the budget allowed Asian creators to enjoy cultural exchange in a greatly improved environment. The showings provided an opportunity for creators to speak about their own films, and for them to mingle with the judges who stand at the forefront of the industry, helping them to grow. In the future, we would like to aggressively approach Asian countries and regions that did not take part in DigiCon6 ASIA, and focus upon bringing about the opportunity for exchange among a greater number of creators.
