April 17 2015 : 5:30pm at H110 Auditorium
Welcome to ANIMAZE Animation Film Festival !
The goal of our festival is to celebrate animation in all of its forms. In our inaugural year, we are focusing on films that would never reach a large North American audience by holding an International Animated Film contest. We’re presenting new films from around the world, some of these films are screening in Canada for the first time.
ANIMAZE supports emerging talent with a student film contest giving animators and visibility exposure lending a helping hand in the industry and to validate student work in a fun environment to the general public.
About the Contest – What, Where, When and Why
Montreal is one of the biggest university cities in the world and a majority are the top animation schools in the country. We felt it was necessary to get them involved.
ANIMAZE supports the local and international animation community. What better way of helping Montreal and Canadian based students by holding a contest to get them exposure in the industry allowing the general public to see some amazing new shorts !
ANIMAZE Student Animated Shorts contest will take place April 17th 2015 7 pm at Concordia’s Henry Hall building auditorium H110, 1455 De Maisonneuve Blvrd, Montréal.
This is a school vs. school competition with the winning institution getting bragging rights for a year as they are crowned “Best of ANIMAZE FILMS 2015!” We want to create a friendly rivalry between the schools in the spirit of competition.
7 schools enters our 2015 ANIMAZE STUDENT CONTEST, with 3 shorts submitted by school. All these movies will be played April 17th 7pm at Concordia University Grand Auditorium H110.
The Winner will be announced during the Closing Ceremony April 19th. His short movie will be screened again at H110 during this event.
