GIRAF 13 Festival

Giant Incandescent Resonating Animation Festival is an annual animation festival that runs each November at the Globe Cinema in Calgary, GIRAF celebrates the spirit of independent, underground, and experimental animation, showcasing Canadian animators and presenting diverse animations from around the globe. We’ve showcased the award-winning independent work of artists including Don Hertzfeldt, David O’Reilly, The Brothers Quay, Wendy Tilby and Amanda Forbis, Malcolm Sutherland, Koji Yamamura, Bruce Bickford, Brandon Bloomaert, Barry Doupe, Cordell Barker, Richard Reeves, Chad Van Gaalan, Mati Kutt, Jan Svankmajer, Priit Parn, Nick Fox-Gieg, Amy Lockhart, Stu Hughes, Madi Piller, and Cam Christiansen, among many others.

GIRAF is committed to creating greater awareness for animation as an art form, through interactive activities including workshops, artist talks, visiting artists, and animation screenings. We focus on presenting works that push boundaries through the development of new techniques, hybrid forms of creation, and challenging subject matter, and thus animation that is rarely seen at other festivals. GIRAF is run by the Quickdraw Animation Society, a non-profit, artist-run centre in Calgary Alberta.
