It was great to go back to Ottawa with a film in competition. The festival provided a hotel room for the duration of the festival, pass and rides to and from the airport, so I felt well taken care of. This year, I felt the film selection was higher caliber than when I was there in 2010 - or maybe just more to my taste. I never agree with the jury choices, but that's ok. Parties felt more geared to the college age crowd, in my opinion. The shout in your neighbor's ear with a bad drink in your hand type. However, there were some fantastic networking events, like the animator's picnic and the Art+Biz brunch. I will always go back when I have the opportunity and hope to bring my students there someday soon! Corrie Around 5 years ago

This is animation central for North America - there's a great industry presence form every major studio, good workshops and panels. It's a great festival for students as well as professionals. Ottawa is a fun town to walk around, with great food and sites for when you need to take a break from the films. The selection refelects the Aritstic Director's personal preferences quite a bit, so don't cry if you don't get in. It's still worth the trip. TIP: You can get a free festival pass by volunteering for the festival. Corrie Around 6 years ago
