Festival Entry Deadlines

Deadlines are fast approaching for three of the major fall animation festivals. If you’re looking for reputable international festivals to enter your films into, these are some solid choices:

Krok International Animated Films Festival (September) has an entry deadline of May 10, 2009.

Ottawa International Animation Festival (Oct. 14-18) has an entry deadline of June 1, 2009.

Holland Animation Film Festival (November 4-8) has an entry deadline of July 1, 2009.

And also don’t forget the Brooklyn-based Animation Block Party (July 24-26). Perhaps not quite in the same league as these other festivals in terms of breadth of programming or international prestige, but it has its own charms. The cut-off for Animation Block entries is May 29, 2009.

    I had two films in last years Animation Block Party and so I decided to attend. Boy let me tell you, this fest was fun fun fun. The opening night was on a huge outdoor movie screen and the place (some college in Brooklyn) was PACKED. It was so great to see so many people my age (roughly between 20 and 35) coming out to watch independent animation.

    So Cartoon Brew, please give Animation Block Party the proper respect it deserves and add it to your list of bold red Animation Festivals.
