Ottawa International Animation Festival
September 17, 2014 until September 21, 2014

From September 17th to 21st, the nation's capital will once again become the center of the animation universe. The Ottawa International Animation Festival (OIAF) is the largest event of its kind in North America, a major film event attracting attendees from around the world. Film buffs, art lovers and cartoon fans thoroughly enjoyed this year's great line up of screenings. This year, the Ottawa International Animation Festival received a total of 2033 entries from 70 different countries. Of those, 101 short films and 5 feature films were chosen for competition.

Below is just a sampling of what the Ottawa International Animation Festival offers: our five Feature Film Competition selections, as well as a special retrospective screening of The Little Mermaid with the directors in attendance to speak about the classic Disney film. Each event repeats at least once throughout the weekend, and other film screenings include the international-class Short Film Competition, retrospectives, workshops, and special presentations. The complete five-day schedule can be found on our official website: www.animationfestival.ca!
