GIRAF 2014

http://www.neme.org/blog/giraf-2014

GIRAF is looking for Animation submissions, in all styles, genres, lengths, and mediums. Our programs are a strong eclectic mix of animation, representing the best of the medium from Claymation to CG. We focus on presenting independent animations that push boundaries through new techniques, unique visions, and stimulating subject matter. We DO NOT CHARGE A SUBMISSION FEE, and encourage short and feature length local, national, international, and student submissions. Animations celebrating their Calgary premiere with GIRAF will be given preference, and accepted filmmakers will be required to provide their film in a high quality digital format.
