Short Film Competition 5
Short Film Competition 5

Loaded with creative, mind-hurtling madness and absurdity. We’ve got rapping hot dog buns (Butter Ya’ Self), pissed-off heroes (Laika studios gut-busting, A Tale of Momentum & Inertia), groundbreaking music videos (Unity, The Terror Pulse), and a bunch of indescribably enlightening weirdness (365, Superjail, Crazy Little Thing, The Obvious Child).

The competition screenings are collections of the best new animation work selected from over 2,000 entries. They feature a mixture of short independent films, TV commercials, series, student films, music videos, and more. Sit with the Festival jury and decide which films you think should win.

Individual tickets are available online soon and 30 minutes before showtime for all other screenings. Passholders have priority seating at all GALA screenings (jury and filmmakers in attendance). Animation Six-Pack ticket holders are given passholder priority. 

Les films en compétition projetés sont la sélection du meilleur de l'animation, choisis parmi
2 000 concurrents. Nous présenterons en vedette des court métrages indépendants, des commerciaux et des émissions de télévision, des films étudiants, des vidéoclips de musique, et plus encore. Joignez-vous au jury du Festival pour choisir vos films favoris.

Les billets à l'unité sont disponibles en ligne et 30 minutes à l'avance pour toutes les autres projections. Les titulaires d'un laissez-passer sont prioritaires pour les places assises aux projections de GALA (auxquelles assistent le jury et les réalisateurs). Les titulaires de billets demi-douzaine d'animation disposent de la même priorité pour les places assises.
