For 38 years, the OIAF (Ottawa International Animation Festival) has attracted film and animation buffs, art lovers and filmmakers from around the globe. This year, approximately 100 finalists are selected for the Film competition, among whom are many French films.

From September 17-21, downtown Ottawa is the stage where you can enjoy the world's most cutting-edge, thoughful, funny and provocative animation films while mingling with many of animation's most celebrated stars, studios and characters. Whether you love classic cartoons, mind-bending experiments, fantastic digital creations, dazzling effects, technical fireworks, thought provoking observations, or pure gut-busting fun, there is something for everyone and anyone.

The Official Competition section of the Ottawa International Animation Festival consists of works selected by the OIAF programming team. On average, the OIAF receives over 2100 submissions each year. Competition includes categories for narrative, exprimental and student films, TV shows, commercials, school showreel, music videos and films and TV shows made for children.
