The World Animation Celebration international animation festival focuses on promoting the brightest, most innovative, emerging talent from all over the world showcasing their films and achievements as original filmmakers. Our goal is to connect schools, studios, and filmmakers to create opportunities for all of our participants. Once a year the event brings together the world of animation films and creators providing a premiere forum to present the newest techniques as well as classic styles of the animation process. We celebrate those artists who make the world of animation what it is today and provide a glimpse at what inspires us; future artists, animators, students, and professionals who continue to pursue animation as a career.
