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.
