The animation event of the year

At TAAFI 2019, everything is possible with animation! Get in from the cold and toast your body and mind to the warm glow of animated stories. Toronto’s animation festival brings you eye-popping shorts, ultra-special feature screenings, and opportunities to meet the filmmakers behind all of it.
