This year MIAF’s 101 series focuses entirely on the people at the pointy end of the artform – independent, auteur animators. This trio of events goes inside the world of filmmakers to illuminate the creative process, explore the magic of a completed film and take a sneek peek at a soon to be completed classic.

ONLY $10 a session!
