Australian Showcase

Our most important program. AIAF Wagga Wagga hosts a collection of the best new Australian animation. This is the first opportunity each year to see a comprehensive collection of new Australian films, many of them introduced by the filmmakers in attendance. A vital and popular program, 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.
