Admission is restricted to 18+

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!
A wee snapshot of the international animating scene.
 

On Time Off
Bill Porter

UK, 2008, 4'00
The slow broil of sunbathers blistering & warping in the heat on a nice day out to the beach.

Sparrows Are Children Of Pigeons
Nina Bisyarina
Russia, 2008, 5'00
Quintessentially classic Russian-style animation. A little boy's imagination embellishes the world around him.

The Conservatory
Matilda Tristram
UK, 2008, 2'00
A series of quick-fix solutions to problems of an emotional nature seen through the prism of immediate home renovation.
The Black Dog's Progress
Stephen Irwin
UK, 2008, 6'00
Flipbook animation multiplied by ten and ten again. A screen filled to overflowing.
Codswallop
The Brothers McLeod
UK, 2008, 3'40
Somewhere in the world is a button that makes everything alright.
Around
Ryu Kato
Japan, 2007, 3'00
A frantic journey through worlds within worlds of scribbled lines and block colours.
La Chambre Renversee
Phillippe Massonnet, Julien Ribot
France, 2008, 3'45
A flight of fancy through a pastel landscape where dreams influence other dreams and other dreams and other dreams.
The Bedwetter
Ingo Schiller, Stephan-Flint Müller
Germany, 2008, 5'00
Every year we have at least frenetic one stopmotion fiesta – and this is most definitely it! A pixelated dream in which the real and the fantastical come together.
Eyelash
Marcel Hobi
Switzerland, 2008, 8'00
Our wishful thinking narrator is fast exhausting his eyelash supply.
Danny's Magical Potion
Gaute Hesthagen
Norway, 2008, 2'00
The global ripple-on effect of a simple, heartfelt utterance. A bottom-up solution to end wars and defeat evil.
Black Tea
Serge Elissade
France, 2008, 5’00
An investigation into tea; silent killer of the paranoid.

Chris / Chrigi
Anja Kofmel
Switzerland, 2008, 7'30
The twists and turns of the animation reflect the inner confusion of a little girl trying to come to terms with the death of an admired cousin.

Shaman
Luc Perez
Denmark, 2008, 11'00
A richly textured exploration of Inuit culture depicted with thick, flowing paint and imagery passed down through the ages.
Labyrinth
Patrick Jenkins
Canada, 2008, 8'00
Classic, bone-dry, film noir styling compliments this detective story with a celestial twist.
