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.

Love and Theft, Andreas Hykade

The engine room; the whole kit-and-kaboodle! Three programs featuring the very best and the very latest short, animated films from all around the world. Every style, every genre, every technique. Your comprehensive, up-to-date overview of the international indie animation scene – including a program focusing entirely on Supinfocom.

Year after year, students from France’s Supinfocom school have been sending us stunning graduation reels and, year after year, we’ve been showin’ ‘em! But last year there was no Supinfocom grad reel because they switched from a four-year course to a five-year course. But they’re back! The latest Supinfocom graduation reel is the first from that five-year course and the results are stunning!!

 

WHITE HAIR
Yuka Takeda
UK, 5'25, 2010
The sudden discovery of a single white hair triggers a stream of obsession and denial.

LOVE AND THEFT
Andreas Hykade
Germany, 6'49, 2009
A beautifully crafted piece of over-caffeinated, animated, morphing madness.

LUIS
Cristobal Leon, Niles Atallah, Joaquin Cocina
Chile, 3'50, 2008
A stop-motion, under-camera masterpiece. Luis appears as ever-changing, ever-shifting imagery on the walls of a room filled with broken objects.
VIDEOGIOCO (Loop Experiment)
Donato Sansone
Italy, 1'20, 2009
Pure magic – right before your eyes. A thousand drawings, a single shot.
THE ORIGIN OF CREATURES
Floris Kaayk
Holland, 11'45, 2009
In this dark parable of a post-catastrophic world, a colony of mutilated limbs emerges in an ultimately doomed attempt to create a new form of randomly co-operative beings.
ACCUMULONIMBUS
Andy Kennedy
USA, 4'27, 2010
A meditation on motion and the life cycle of matter animated hands-on in soft clay on a spin cycle.
DAS TUB
James Cunningham
New Zealand, 4'05, 2010
Lost in the murky depths of a strange ocean, a German U-boat crew finds themselves on a collision course with objects stranger than they can fathom.
THE BRIEFCASE MAN
ArtFX
France, 5'23, 2010
A man, a briefcase, a horizon, a shaky pathway high above the ground.
THE TWIN GIRLS OF SUNSET STREET
Marc Riba, Anna Solanas
Spain, 13'00, 2010
Ointments, elixirs and poultices. Enriqueta and Ramoneta will attend your needs with discretion and reserve at Sunset St No 17A, Barcelona.
AMAR
Isabel Herguera
Spain, 8'10, 2010
A visit to an Indian mental institution reminds Ines of the last days she spent with her friend Amar.
THE EXTERNAL WORLD
David OReilly

A boy learns to play the piano – the hard way. Digital surrealism laced with abstract absurdities conjures up a universe that is difficult to explain or understand.
