The South Beach International Animation Festival, South Florida's only festival of it's kind, is seeking submissions for this annual event. From April 2 - 5, 2009 the festival will screen world and U.S. animated films including student and professional works of all varieties. As proof that cartoons are not just kid's stuff, we've included categories for advertising, new media, Toons After Dark and "Boomers" who are over 50 and doing animation for the first time.
Screened at the Miami Beach Cinematheque on historic SouthBeach and various venues around Miami schedules include programs for both general and late night audiences. The festival has 4-days of screenings, public events including discussions, receptions, exhibits and demonstrations. This year the Festival will include other art forms including comics, illustration, character and toy design, gaming, Anime, motion graphics and gallery art. Audiences and artist will be able to meet and mingle to discuss the works and the making of these films. The competitive event is open to all animated films regardless of technique, length or production date. SBIAF is the first film festival to offer a risk free entrance fee. If a film is not selected for festival screening the entire fee will be returned to the artist.
