OIAF Returns Online in September 2021
Ottawa, ON ~ The 45th edition of the Ottawa International Animation Festival will be held online again this year for an extended run from September 22 to October 3. The OIAF team has been hoping that an “in person” event might be possible in 2021, but the current forecast for the pandemic indicates that a safe and enjoyable event would be difficult to stage.
Online OIAF will feature all the favourite events of the live Festival including the Official Competition and Panorama screenings showcasing the best new animated films from around the world. Participants will once again be able to take part in a wide-range of artist and industry talks, meet with animation schools and recruiters, and just hang-out with some of the world’s best animators. InGenius Jr Day for Families will return, along with free events for high school students.
The Animation Conference (TAC), OIAF’s industry event, will move online again as well, offering up some enhanced networking opportunities that will give delegates unprecedented access to development executives from around the world.
Passes will be going on sale this summer. Animation students will once again have access to a heavily discounted pass that will provide access to all screenings and talks.
See you there!
