International Program #1 (2015)
The International Programs are the backbone of the whole AIAF mission. Your up-to-date snapshot of the world's independent animation scene. The freshest new shorts taken from the 3,500+ that entered (a smashing new record folks!!) There's every style, every technique, every genre. Drawn from a global call for entries, they are a set of headlights illuminating the current state of the international indie and auteur animation scene worldwide. Step right up - get 'em while they're hot!

One hot summer's day, a lone patrolman deals to a couple of homicidal teddy bears. THEN it turns weird.... then it turns romantic!
Oh yeah, it's eat or be eaten in this crazy, mixed up, hot dog dancing, flower picking, fish slapping, self cooking ol' world.

A truly astounding piece of stop-motion animation tracing the clockwork reincarnations of a watchmaker and the mouse that called his home-of-a-thousand-clocks home.
Ahhhh, George Carlin, how we miss him. He was a modern man, a man for the millennium, digital and smoke free. He knew the upside of downsizing and a hell of a lot more to boot.

A life can be lived, measured and even manipulated in so many different ways but beware the cracks and the sudden endings.
