From September 26-30, 2018 downtown Ottawa is home to the Ottawa International Animation Festival (OIAF), North America’s largest and one of the leading events of its kind internationally. Throughout Downtown Rideau you can enjoy the world’s most cutting-edge, thoughtful, funny and provocative animation films while mingling with many of the industry’s most celebrated stars, studios and characters.
For Managing Director Kelly Neall, the best part of her job is “Watching hundreds of animators and animation fans come together – it’s like they have found their community. They just have such an amazing time. It makes all the hard work worth it.”
Artists, producers, students and animation enthusiasts from around the world have been coming together in Ottawa for this vibrant five-day annual event since 1976. With 80+ screenings, talks, workshops, exhibits, panels and parties presented in venues across Downtown Rideau there is something for everyone, and very likely something that will expand your horizons!
