Animation Festival List

PLEASE NOTE: This festival list was created a few years ago. It is not comprehensive. The listing may not be current. We leave it on our website because some folks have told us it is useful. However we don’t plan to update it. There are other, more current resources including review sites (like filmfestivals.com) and entry sites for filmmakers, like (without-a-box and b-side).
