The Australian International Animation Festival 2005 featured a celebrated collection of the world's finest animation for its second consecutive year. The festival secured amazing exclusives from more than 1,000 submissions from over 30 countries. The range of styles, genres and techniques is testament to the vibrancy and relevance of creative animation. The International Competition programs are made up of an eclectic mix of films and will give audiences a complete, up-to-date snapshot of the international creative animation scene. As co-director, producer and editor for the event, I organised the venue, technical duties and marketing for the evening. The festival premiered on Thursday 20th October and Friday 21st October at the Forum 6 Cinema, Wagga Wagga, and featured the Academy Award Winning 'Ryan' by Chris Landreth. The success of the event secured Wagga playing host to AIAF in 2006. This event also toured in a compact format to other major cities funded by other promoters.
