Australian Showcase (2011)

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 artform is travelling.
