NAF 2006 - Date / Press Release.
Northern Anime Festival!
Northern Anime Festival 2006 will be held on Saturday July 22nd 2006 at the Durham College and UOIT Oshawa Campus:
Do you love the excitement of anime conventions but want a change from the regular? Northern Anime Festival is the way to go! With a feeling more like summer camp or college life, NAF's staff is friendly and outgoing, eager to help make your convention experience the best it can be. With a cast of guests that tend to take the lead and mingle well with the fans, it's a really open atmosphere that makes for a unique and enjoyable event. NAF features all the goodies that most cons do, from dances, loads of panels and even a dealer room mixing in an artist alley. However, NAF goes a step further by offering in depth guest panels from a Darkain Arts film festival featuring their latest works, to workshops from industry experts willing to share their experiences with eager fans and upcoming hopefuls alike. If you want a new way to enjoy the convention experience, try out NAF. A welcome change from the regular, at a cosplay filled college!
We are also please to announce our first guest of honor for our 2006 event, Lisa Furukawa Ray a Japanese-American pianist, singer, and songwriter. Utilizing her talents in contemporary and classical music, Lisa’s performances and recordings display a fusion of Japanese folk, alternative pop, and electronica.
