About SPAFi

What is SPAFi?

SPAFi is the society for Education and Knowledge Exchange Support in the computer animation and film industry

The main objectives of the society are to provide the opportunity for artists, designers and developers to keep in touch with state-of-the-art technologies, to introduce such parties to Best Practices in the digital film industry and computer games production, and to help artists both acquire and improve on their knowledge and experience.
SPAFi is active in providing the contact between the Artists on one side, and the potential customers or the employers on the other. The health market, based on the most appropriate knowledge and skills, is a key platform for increased growth in the industry.
The animation market is unleashing an infinite number of opportunities for all artists from diverse backgrounds. SPAFi provides a networking point linking graphic designers, animators, game developers, industry designers, architects, engineers, story writers, directors, musicians, composers and all others who believe they can contribute in any way possible to the creation of animation.
