News for Big Apple Anime Fest 2003:

Big Apple Anime Fest 2004 update

Big Apple Anime Fest has updated the main page of their web site to explain what's going on with BAAF 2004.

The original planned date for BAAF conflicts with the date of the Republican National Convention in New York City. As a result, nearly every hotel is booked up that weekend. With the added problem that BAAF has outgrown the facilities of the Marriott Marquis, the event must choose to either move to a different weekend and institute an attendance cap, reduce the scale to a film festival, or skip 2004 entirely.

Meetings have been scheduled to figure out how to proceed. A decision is not expected until after April 1st.
