Festival artistic director Chris Robinson, said: “This was without doubt one of the strongest years I can recall”. “The quality of almost every category was high. We could have easily added another 1-2 competition screenings. Animators continue to prove that animation is the summit of all arts. I’m really excited to see how audiences — and juries — react to this year’s diverse group of works.”
For this year jury members consist of Chris Dainty, Kaspar Jancis, Maral Mohammadian, Leah Shore, Yiorgos Tsangaris, and Saschka Unseld. The festival will take place from September 16-20 in Ottawa, Canada, and always is a good idea to visit animation event.
