The Alberta Society for Asian Popular Arts exists to promote Asian arts and culture, such as Japanese animation. We do this through holding and attending events and festivals throughout the province as well as supporting the local community in regards to popular Asian arts.
Animethon is a Japanese Animation (“anime”) themed festival held annually in the city of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. We have expanded our focus beyond screening anime and now also include voice actor guests from North America, musical acts from North America and Japan, improvisation groups, as well as various related activities such as gaming, costume contests, and more. Animethon, as of 2004, is operated by the Alberta Society for Asian Popular Arts (ASAPA).
