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.

Crazed, weird, extreme or just impossible to explain plots – a boggling compendium of the wildest animated ideas horse whipped up to warp speed and transponded back from parallel universes.

Her Lovely Fears
Ben Wheele

UK, 2007, 2'45
With a hefty nod to a kind of digital Pythonesqueness, this film sets about showing us why a mad menagerie of creatures are so obsessed with Dabeir. A truly giddy, fullscale oddness is infused in even element of the DNA of this marvellously entertaining film.
Golden Age: Hansel And Gretel
Aaron Augenblick
USA, 2007, 3'00
Did they or didn’t they?

The Elastic Barber
Milla Nybondas
Finland, 2007, 5'30
Shivering sheep have to wait for their haircuts while the giraffe chases down the killer bee that stole his cap. From here’s it’s a mere plot extension to convert them all to woolly tumbleweed satellites orbiting the earth and re-inflating the giraffe’s head to bursting after he pierces the solar system.
Golden Age: Antsy And The Bugaboos
Aaron Augenblick
USA, 2007, 3'00
A tribute to the original bug band and the fragile insect genius behind their rise and their ultimately unlistenable album Firefly Fart Fondue.
The Legs

One man’s eye popping battle with a set of crazy legs.
Elephant Girl
David Lobser

An invasion of moths and rolling eggs quickly leads to a some twisting tongue action on the couch – until the tongue breaks free. The last rolling egg hatches a rose which quickly releases three flying screws that pierce the wall allowing a lava flow of horrific brown goo to flood the room.
Our House

Germany, 2007, 8'30
A warts and all fiesta of stopmotion techniques and surprises. As we wait for the spider on the top floor to finish her web, we are fill in the time witnessing a catalogue of homicidal chain reactions that highlight the risks of living so close to your neighbours.
¡Ay Caramba!
M. Harzog, M. Lukhaup, V. Pfeifenberger, R. Ziegler

Germany, 2007 3'45
A sponge, a salad, a balloon, a car and a pair of socks take part in an epic race under the gaze of an omnipresent jury who seem happy to randomly interfere for no other purpose than the pleasure of exercising their rights as Gods.
Golden Age: Sketch Towers
Aaron Augenblick
USA, 2007, 3'00
A place of horror and intrigue where old, barely imagined and unfinished animated characters are locked up forever.
Walk For Walk
Amy Lockhart
Canada, 2006, 10'00
