Our OG festival is back and once again we will open up a call to international film makers for submissions, curated and showcased at the Ted Rogers Hot Docs Cinema in Downtown Toronto. Previous years have seen over 1,500 submissions from incredible artists around the world, and over 100 screenings often with the directors in attendance. We look forward to introducing this new screen-centric programming that speaks not only to our beloved industry community and supporters, but welcomes the general public as well, including film enthusiasts and families to experience inspiring animation from around the world and from their own backyard.
Our most exciting new format, TAAFI Industry collects our wildly popular industry keynotes, panels, workshops and sneak peeks in a dedicated weekend long format that lets our animation audience dig into inspiring and informative content. This year’s conference will include over two days of multiple streams of programming combined with key speakers and networking events spanning a full weekend in November. Programming is already underway with announcements for key events ,including topline speakers and panels, arriving soon!
The wildly popular TAAFI job fair is growing year over year, connecting hundreds of job seekers and studio. Originally a part of the festival itself, the Job Fair now operates as a fully independent event at the end of the post-secondary calendar each year, welcoming both graduate and professional talent from around the province as they connect with 40+ studios from across North America. Event programming includes a special Presentation Zone for attendees as well as special guest speakers, panels and studio showcases. Year over year attendance has peaked at 1,500 and continues to trend upwards.
