GIANT INCANDESCENT RESONATING ANIMATION FESTIVAL

GIRAF is a celebration of independent animation, a showcase of the best of what's being made here in Canada and around the world. Each year, we scour the globe for the most astounding, inventive, beautiful, mind-altering and unexpected animated films out there.

For our 17th festival, we've gone nation-wide, bringing nearly 90 short films to audiences across Canada, on demand from November 19-28. Join us for a stellar assortment of films, plus artist talks, panel discussions, and a newly scanned version of an under-seen classic. Welcome to GIRAF.
