I have recently added two animation festivals that were sent to me by the festivals. More updates will follow shortly.
I also wanted to share a recent article by Chris Robinson, director the the Ottawa International Animation Festival about entry fees…- click here.
And, lastly, if you do get into a festival, I encourage you to spread the word about the festival, not (only) for your own self promotion, but for the festival, marketing, etc. In that vein, I would like to share the upcoming Melbourne International Animation Festival, June 18th-25th- please check it out and attend if you can! (I have an animation in the installation category..)
Indie-AniFest presents spectacular independent animated films from Korea and Asia. The festival offers a diverse range of works and opportunities for filmmakers as well as a chance to interact with audiences. We strive for the values of independence, experimentation, passion and vision by working together with independent animation directors.
Animac is the International Film Festival of Animation in Catalonia. Over the years, Animac has consolidated its independent and artistic character. Created in 1996 and throughout his 21 years history has become one of the most popular audiovisual events held in Spain, with an important international presence and prestige. Nowadays Animac is a rigorous, dynamic and welcoming festival continually making efforts to improve, generating new audiences and attracting those who love animation. Animac is a non-competitive film festival aimed at artists who use animation as a tool for personal expression. We go beyond the limits of traditional narrative and we seek visionaries who make independent and daring works full of energy and who take their expressive potential to the limit. Animac is also a meeting place for artists, a laboratory in which ideas are generated and relations between the different artistic disciplines are established. It is a place to dream and screen stories of the future.
