Works in this division use animation as their primary practice. The division welcomes all topics and foci, and encourages creative applications of animation. The Festival has a long-standing tradition of animation for all ages. We are interested in animation for both children and adults. The CIV+VF has traditionally presented a Saturday Morning Cartoons For Kids program for children of all ages as part of the Festival’s regular programming. For the second year in a row we are pleased to announce a $1,000 screening fee award dedicated to the works chosen for our Saturday Morning Cartoons/First Night screenings. The child-friendly animated works chosen for the screenings will receive a screening fee for the use of their work thanks to the generosity of the Puffin Foundation West, Ltd. Less
