The Giant Incandescent Resonating Animation Festival is our annual 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. Then we bring it to Calgary for four days of screenings, artist talks, performances and more.
We’ve got shorts packs galore, award-winning films on Japanese punk-rockers and Spanish surrealists, artist talks with queer storytellers and animation legends, and plenty more. Join us for a celebration of all things animated!
