ANIMATION IS FILM fills a gap in the market by launching a world class animation festival in the US, with its home in the world capital of filmmaking.

The Festival embraces the highest aspirations of animation as a cinematic art form on par with live action, and is a vocal advocate for filmmakers who push the boundaries of their work to the fullest range of expression that the medium is capable of.

Animation is Film Festival is a major animation festival produced by GKIDS in collaboration with Annecy International Animation Film Festival and Variety. The event takes place every October at the historic TCL Chinese 6 Theatres in Hollywood.
