Australian Panorama

One of our most popular and important programs. Showcasing Australian animation is what AIAF loves to do best and, as a result, it's this program that we tour nationally and internationally. The program will feature a collection of the best, recently released Australian animated shorts and will present local work in all of its diverse glory.
