GIRAF is a celebration of independent animation, a showcase of the best of what’s being made here in Canada and around the world, streaming this year at watch.ffyyc.ca
Each year, we scour the globe for the most astounding, inventive, beautiful,
mind-altering and unexpected animated films out there. For 2020, we’re bringing 80+ shorts and features to animation fans across Alberta, plus artist talks, interviews, and workshops exploring the art of animation.
Screenings are online and on demand, and are available to Alberta audiences only. Watch whenever you like, or follow our Discord Watch Party schedule to hang out with the QAS team and animation fans around the province, and share in the celebration of independent animated art!
GIRAF is an annual animation festival that runs each November at the Globe Cinema in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
Incorporated in 1984, the Quickdraw Animation Society (QAS) serves as a fulcrum for independent artists and the larger community with progressive artistic and community-based initiatives.
Awards:- Selected films will be presented during GIRAF 17 — scheduled for November 2021 — and the best International and Canadian short film will be awarded.
