Ottawa International Animation Festival Wrap-up - Part One

27 October 2010 9:29 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

[Our thanks to Kier-La Janisse for the following.]

Another Ottawa International Festival of Animation has wrapped, and a recent move to the vicinity has finally allowed me to attend the legendary event, the largest in Canada of its kind, and renowned internationally as a launching pad for many up-and-coming animators. The industry section of the festival alone - a robust conference that facilitates interaction between animation studios, schools and budding talent - makes the festival unique, but at the head of it all is Artistic Director Chris Robinson, eccentric animation scholar whose curatorial preference for underdog animation ensures that Oiaf stays vital and exciting.

Going through last year's schedule, I was a bit worried that the programming was going mainstream, but any doubts were allayed by this year's feature competition (which forewent some obvious choices - the new Svankmajer, for example -  in favour of more personal, low budget productions) and various indie-focused retrospectives.
