Florida Anime Experience is a fan convention devoted exclusively to anime, manga, and Japanese popular culture. Thus, all fan panels should fit this very specific theme in order to help contribute to the focus of the overall event. Please take time read the following before applying for a panel:
- ONLY ONE PANEL PER PERSON/GROUP. We want to present a variety of perspectives regarding Japanese popular culture and – while we appreciate you hosting a panel – we want to make sure you have the time to enjoy the rest of the convention! (NOTE: If you are interested in hosting multiple panels/events, you can submit you/your group for Featured Talent status. Email Guests@FloridaAnime.com)
- ALL PANEL HOSTS MUST BE PAID ATTENDEES OF THE CONVENTION. We don’t offer comp passes for single panel presentations. And we don’t allow more than one panel per person/group. (You can see where we’re going with this.)
- PANEL CONTENT MUST BE APPROPRIATE TO THE THEME OF THE CONVENTION – JAPANESE POPULAR CULTURE. Please refer to the “no Halo in our game room” mission statement. We’re an anime convention about ANIME, manga, and other aspects of Japanese culture. While we, too, are fans of Batman, My Little Pony, and other staples of pop culture, they don’t fit in with this particular convention’s theming.
- ALL FAN PANELS SHOULD NOT EXCEED A PG-13 RATING. Florida Anime Experience is designed to be a family friendly convention with entertainment available to the general public. While we may occasionally offer some 18+ events, they are tightly regulated, labelled as such, and offered only late in the evening.
- SCHEDULING IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE BASED ON THE NEEDS OF FLORIDA ANIME EXPERIENCE. We will do our best to work with you on scheduling the panel in a time slot that works best for everyone involved. If, for unforeseen reason, we need to change when your panel is scheduled, we will let you know in advance.
Thanks for wanting to be a part of “the Experience!” We look forward to reviewing your panel.
