On Saturday, July 28th, the Toronto Animated Image Society (TAIS) is thrilled to present a summer night of animated dreams: two 45 minute programmes of short animated films, the results of the 2018 Anijam competition, and a new commissioned work by Amanda Low.

Featuring 18 short animated films, the finalists in this year’s programme are diverse in style and content. Including themes of self-love and aspiration, loss and struggle, narratives of deception, community and connection, and playful experimental works exploring form and sound, this year’s programme proudly features films from 6 different countries: Canada, USA, Costa Rica, UK, China, and Taiwan.

This programme is for mature audiences only.

Awards will be given – as selected by the audience, and by a guest jury of animation artists: Amy Lockhart, Paloma Dawkins, and Rory Waudby-Tolley. The audience will select an ‘Audience Choice – Short Film’ and ‘Audience Choice – Best Anijam’. The jury will award a ‘Grand Prize – Best of the Showcase’ award, and a ‘Jury’s Best Anijam’ award.

Also featured is TAIS’ FAN FICTION Anjiam competition. With 12 entries this year, these 10-second animations are mash-up masterpieces, with creative never-before-seen combos that hint at unique universes filled with familiar characters. For the second year in a row, the Showcase Jury’s pick for Best Anijam will be awarded a cash prize and in-kind studio use toward production of a short animated project for presentation at TAIS Showcase in 2019. The audience will also decide a Best Anijam Audience Award on the night of the screening.

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