On Saturday, July 29th, the Toronto Animated Image Society (TAIS) is thrilled to present a summer night of animated dreams: two 60 minute programmes of short animated films, the results of the 2017 Anijam competition, and a new interactive work in VR by artist Zeesy Powers.

Featuring 20 short animated films, all created in the last two years, the finalists in this year’s programme cover a variety of genres and stylistic approaches to the animation art form. Including ethereal and spooky dreamscapes, car chases, evocative abstraction, environmental issues, humour, sentimentality, and themes that speak to a positive Queer future, this year’s programme features narrative and experimental films from 8 different countries: Canada, USA, Costa Rica, UK, China, Switzerland, Spain, and Taiwan.

This programme is for mature audiences only.

Awards will be given! Selected by a guest jury of Canadian animation gurus/filmmakers/artists: Michael Fukushima, Adrienne Crossman, and Nicolas Sassoon, the ‘Grand Prize - Best of the Showcase’ and the ‘Jury’s Best Anijam’ awards will be announced. The audience also gets a chance to have a say, selecting an ‘Audience Choice - Short Film’ and ‘Audience Choice - Best Anijam’.

Also featured is TAIS’ BIG EYES Sharp Teeth Anjiam competition. With 20 entries this year, these 10-second animations bite off more than they can chew, and hold you in a piercing glare and won’t let you look away. With wide-eyed wonder we're excited to watch this year's competition! It will be fierce!

The Animation Showcase is produced by the Toronto Animated Image Society (TAIS), an artist-run, non-profit charitable organisation dedicated to exploring and promoting independent (non-commercial) animation production.
