IMPORTANT: Film classification regulations in Australia require
all films to either be formally classified OR restricted to an audience of 18 years of age and over. Most festivals do not have the resources to do this and it is for this reason alone that we are not able to admit any person under the age of 18 years to the main AIAF screenings.

Australian animation turns up in festivals all over the world and is recognised for its diversity and inventiveness. This program showcases that diversity – every technique, genre and style imaginable; classic tales, documentaries, abstract and comedies. It’s all here in this collection that will premiere here in Wagga Wagga before heading off for screenings around Australia and the world.

It takes a special monkey to take on these sorts of missions. A monkey with the right stuff; a monkey that has the right pedigree. A monkey that knows which button to push. And which button not to push – oh yes, that’s important too!

Professor Pebbles
Pierce Davison
2007, 12'45
They say your 500th birthday is always the hardest. Professor Pebbles had hoped for a much more important role to play in hell than teaching basic evil to bored school kids. Is it his fault that he's a nice guy?
Global Warming
Sheldon Lieberman, Igor Coric

Utterly hilarious! This guy will have you rolling in the aisles until they fill up with glacier melt.
