The Quickdraw Animation Society has been watching Alberta's animation scene for decades now, so trust us when we say that the community here has been especially active over the last year. There's a steadily growing collection of artists making increasingly accomplished films, and we couldn't be more excited about it.
Not every film in this package is created by a current Alberta resident — we certainly aren't going to hold it against folks for feeling the need to roam. But every one of them has a strong connection to this province, and for most of them, a strong connection to Quickdraw, too.
As impressive as this year's films are, though, we have a sneaking suspicion that they're just a start. The energy, enthusiasm, creativity and talent coming out of this province continues to blow us away, and that'll hopefully remain true for a long time to come.
Please note: Ticket purchases are restricted to Alberta residents. Many films at GIRAF deal with mature subjects, and are not recommended for young audiences.
