About the GIRAF International Film Festival:


The GIRAF Festival celebrates independent, private and experimental animation every year in November at the Globe Cinema in Calgary, showcasing Canadian animations and various animations from around the world. The GIRAF festival is committed to creating greater awareness of animation as an art form, through interactive activities that include workshops, chats for resident and visiting artists and animation shows. The festival also focuses on presenting works that push the boundaries of creativity by developing new technologies, mixed forms of production, and raising challenging topics, and animation that is rarely displayed in other festivals. GIRAF Festival is managed by the Quickdraw Animation Society, a non-profit center run by artists in Calgary, Alberta.
