About: As the ultimate festival celebration for anime fans, cosplayers and gamers all around, INSANIME Festival is taking its Halloween thrills to summertime delights: you don’t want to miss out on the unforgettable fun that’s to come this 4th of July!
Goal: After an incredible Halloween debut, which achieved max capacity at The Belasco Theater Basement, INSANIME Festival is prepared to ascend to greater heights--literally! We’re here to go above and beyond for all attendees by taking over the Belasco Theater's MAIN BALLROOM with an even bigger dance floor and much much MUCH more video games!
With the continued love and support from the anime fan community, we’ve received great deal of comments and requests on social media asking for spin-off events such as a summer version of our Halloween celebration, to which lead to the conception of INSANIME Festival.
While ANIME Impulse continues to flourish each year, our team is still composed of a humble few, abiding by its vision of “for the fans, by the fans.” As always, we strive to keep the enjoyment of attendees in mind. And by no means do we want to impose the burden of production costs onto our supporters.
Rather, we want to see and gauge how many supporters we can look forward to welcoming at our festival this summer! Your support deserves nothing short of the best experience, especially at a summer celebration like this one! By your help, we can make the move from the basement floor up to the main ballroom for an anime festival like none other!
With this ascension, we can go all out with our festivities and feature:
- Cosplay Showcase: With cosplayers bringing out their absolute best, we wanna see who is the best in show with our Cosplay Contest! - Concerts: No festival is complete without a rocking main stage--and INSANIME will be no exception. The Belasco Theater will be full with an eclectic mix of musical acts, giving shine to up and coming local artists in the music scene. - Guests of Honor: The chance to meet your cosplay senpai and more is here for you to take! Cosplayers, influencers, industry guests--come by to say hi! - Gaming Balcony: Gaming has never looked so elegant and grand! With the likes of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Street Fighter and plenty more, attendees can enjoy thrilling 3D action and an incredible view of The Belasco Theater from up above. - Marketplace: A special section where attendees can browse and peruse the best in anime merchandise (clothing, figures, accessories, etc.) to their heart's delight.
We estimate this festival will cost approximately $25,000.00. We need your help to gauge how many supporters we can count on to help move this event forward. For a breakdown of where your support will be going, reward list, and more info, please check out our Kickstarter page!:
