Celebrating the art of African animation on a global stage at Cape Town International Animation Festival.
Proudly presented by Animation SA, the ninth Cape Town International Animation Festival (CTIAF), takes place from 1 to 3 May. This year, the event is excitingly co-located with the first Comic Con Cape Town at Cape Town Stadium.
CTIAF is the largest dedicated African animation festival on the continent. It is renowned for presenting world-class content as well as an opportunity to engage with global industry leaders. The programme includes something for everyone, from animated films to insightful workshops and masterclasses, and business-to-business sessions, producer events, networking opportunities and government panel discussions. The CTIAF is committed to inspiring the next generation of both audiences and animators with its popular annual student competition, family programme and an outreach initiative.
“We’ve searched the globe to bring you the best of the animation industry and are proud to present the best of Africa to the world,” says Festival Director Dianne Makings. “South Africans can enjoy the world’s top animated films, which they would otherwise not get to see, while the industry has the chance to connect with their counterparts from around the world. We showcase Africa’s animation talent under one roof and uniquely understand the challenges, needs and opportunities of the African animation industry.
