Animation is the most imaginative and engaging of all artforms and is the perfect platform to enthrall and inspire the wide-open imaginations of kids.

Quickdraw Animation Society 30th Anniversary Retrospective  15+
This extensive retrospective of some of the best films to come from within the QAS stable shows just how important it has been to nurture the true independent spirit of the Canadian animation scene. Fun, anarchic films happily rub shoulders with sublime abstract works. Hand-drawn cartoons share space with cameraless films. This is what grassroots, independent, auteur animation is all about.

3 Days, 30 Metro tickets, 24 studios, a LOTTA coffee, a pile of films = FOUR big programs (including the Sacrebleu Showcase). Festival Director Malcolm Turner, armed only with a tourist map and a fistful of metro tickets, hit the streets in a mad dash to visit as many Parisian production and distribution studios as possible in just 3 days. PARIS NEW 1 & NEW 2 explores the best recent releases these studios generously shared with us, in a shout-it-out-loud statement on Paris’ claim to be the animating capital of the world!
'Marilyn Myller': Mikey Please 6.00pm

'Aint MIsbehavin': Chris Sullivan 7.45pm
Chris Sullivan (USA): Shorts Collection  18+
Sullivan is one of the rawest and most authentic voices in animation. He is a filmmaker that has devoted a lot of energy to interrogating his various obsessions and using the medium of animation to give them a profound and complex voice. He is a master of a variety of hand-made animation techniques and seamlessly switches between them as he follows his own sense of dark humour down the various underlit pathways that it drags him into. His films can be shocking and hilarious in equal measure and say MUCH about the conflicted humanity that inhabits most of us. There is just nobody else making films like this – they are soft acid, bitter sugar and bright colours in the shade. In this program of his best short films spanning some 20+ years, the breadth and depth – the pure deliciously spicy malevolency – of his various targets are unleashed as a kind of lava flow of social commentary. The program closes with a 10min sneak peak of the feature he is currently working on.
'An Errand': Ghim Naheun 9.30pm
Late Night Macabre  18+
If ever there was evidence that animation is a lot more than cute kids stories, this fearsome collection of the best truly haunted animated visions is most definitely it. MIAF received almost 2,900 entries this year and a good number of them were screams from the other side, the result of the filmmaker turning the dial to ‘macabre’ and unleashing the powerfully imaginative toolkit that animation offers to explore an almost unimaginable, undefinable series of pathways. Aficionados of the bizarre will revel in this collection of possessed apparitions. Close the doors, turn off the lights, buckle in.
