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.

The backbone of the annual AIAF mission! Almost every one of these films is an Australian premiere. We received more than 2000 entries from every corner of the world and this collection of the best of them is your up to date snapshot of the international animation scene.
