Ottawa Inter­na­tional Ani­ma­tion Fes­ti­val (OIAF)

North America’s largest ani­ma­tion event, the Ottawa Inter­na­tional Ani­ma­tion Fes­ti­val (OIAF) is remind­ing the ani­ma­tion com­mu­nity to get their work in before it’s too late. Entry forms must be sub­mit­ted online by May 20th, and pre­view DVDs are due by June 3rd. There is no entry fee.

This year’s event takes place Sep­tem­ber 21st to 25th and promises to turn Canada’s cap­i­tal into the cen­ter of the ani­ma­tion uni­verse. The Fes­ti­val show­cases the best new ani­ma­tion from around the world in six major cat­e­gories includ­ing Inde­pen­dent Short films, Fea­ture films, New Media, Com­mis­sioned films (TV series, com­mer­cials, music videos etc), Stu­dent films and Work Made for Children.

In addi­tion to the Com­pe­ti­tion screen­ings, the 2011, event the Fes­ti­val pays trib­ute to the bizarre, funny, angry, scary, and con­fus­ing worlds of Gil Alk­a­betz, Mati Kütt, and Aaron Augen­blick. Hon­orary pres­i­dent, the NFB’s David Ver­rall gives us Ten Rea­sons to Love Ani­ma­tion. John Cane­maker takes us through the art of Joe Ranft and Joe Grant, while Jerry Beck invites us to join the Car­toon Fight Club. Plus, the Fes­ti­val will dig into ani­ma­tion in Hip-Hop Cul­ture and have a look at our rela­tion­ship with Food. Hun­gry yet? Addi­tional screen­ings will be announced in the near future.
For more infor­ma­tion about this year’s Fes­ti­val, as well as the online entry form, visit the OIAF web­site at Ques­tions about sub­mit­ting a film may be sent to [email protected] or made by tele­phone at 613–232-8769.
