(except for Kids & Teen programs)

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.

Get ready to strap yourselves in and don your festival viewing hat, because the Australian International Animation Festival is hitting town once again for a three day blast of animation goodness!

Based in Wagga Wagga, NSW, AIAF is one of the most relaxed and informal animation festivals you’ll find anywhere. Even with our comprehensive collection of competitive programs, themed screenings, talks and workshops, there is plenty of time for surprise screenings and to celebrate this very special artform.

Mix all that with a premier screening of this collection (that's right!) and very affordable festival passes, and you have an unforgettable weekend to lock into your diary.

Once again, we selected this year’s programs from more than 2,000 submissions and 30 countries - a remarkable response from filmmakers and producers around the world. The range of styles, genres and techniques is testament to the vibrancy and relevance of creative animation. We’ve worked hard to try and reflect that incredible diversity in our final selections and to bring a true snapshot of the inspiring international animation scene to the big screen, right here in Wagga Wagga.
