Indie Animation Mixtape: Side D

Discord watch party: 9pm, November 28

Each year, Quickdraw scours the globe for surprising, genre-bending, artistically adventurous independent animation to compile into our ongoing Indie Animation Mixtapes. For 2020, we found so many new favourites that there was no choice but to expand it into four full programs.


The fourth side of our Indie Animation Mixtape offers some of the festival's most colourful selections, alongside some of the starkest. There are creation myths (of sort), afterlives, and even a post-apocalypse that's oddly one of the brightest moments of GIRAF16. Don't let the fact that this is the final side of the mixtape throw you off — it's all about ending on a high note.

Please note: Ticket purchases are restricted to Alberta residents. Many films at GIRAF deal with mature subjects, and are not recommended for young audiences.
