TAC: The Animation Conference

Sept 20 – 22, 2023

Our festival in their words

"Very impressive!"

Very impressive! All of the industry panels and talks I attended were so informative, kudos to the team that booked that programming. I have been unable to attend OIAF for the past few years because of work and expenses so it was so nice to have the virtual option more in my budget and with so much on demand content.


"The best event of its kind"

I think OIAF is the best event of its kind in the industry. Always fiercely independent, it presents the only true cross-section of what’s happening in the animation world.

"Inspiring, productive..."

OIAF is consistently the festival that gathers the best mix of independent and commercial animators, encouraging us to cross-pollinate in the most inspiring, productive, and fun ways possible.
