Australian Showcase

A chance for Australian animation to come front and centre. This is the first comprehensive snapshot of Australian animation in 2013 and if this collection is anything to go by, creative Australian animation is in tremendous shape. One of our most important and popular programs, there aren't many opportunities to see Australian animation on the big screen and each year AIAF probably shows more than any other event in the world. This is an opportunity to see what Australian animators are doing, how they're doing it and how the art form is traveling. After the screening there is a chance to meet many of the animators, hear them talk about their films and ask them questions about their work.
