Otafest-lite is a 1 day anime festival held at the University of Calgary on Saturday, November 13th, 2010. It will be similar to the Otafest you know and love, except that it will be on a much reduced scope. While Otafest spanned multiple buildings at the University and offered 5 rooms of AV programming, a large vendors hall, an artist alley, and over 80+ individual panels, contests and other special events, Otafest-lite will be held solely in the Science Theatres at the University and feature 3 rooms of AV programming, a small area for vendors and artists and roughly 20 live events.
The goal is to re-create the small-convention atmosphere which characterized Otafest’s past, while giving back to the community. Target attendance is roughly 500-1000 people – Otafest-lite 2009 had just over 900 attendees! We also donated $5,000 to the Mustard Seed!
