GIRAF 15 – International Festival of Independent Animation

We’re looking for independent and artful animated films to share with our audience in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. That’s intentionally pretty general: it can mean abstract or narrative, hand-drawn or computer-generated, student films or well-established professionals, or anywhere in between. We want films we can be excited about, films that are expanding what animation can do, and films that make us feel things.

More Details

The festival is also aimed at an adult audience, so we rarely select films that are explicitly aimed at children. Music videos are admittedly a bit of a grey area.
