The Australian International Animation Festival 2006 featured a celebrated collection of the world's finest animation for its third consecutive year. The festival secured amazing exclusives from more than 1,500 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 Friday 11th August to Sunday 13th August, 2006 at the Forum 6 Cinema, Wagga Wagga, and featured free seminars from Andrew Hagan and John Lewis. The success of the event secured Wagga playing host to AIAF in 2007. This event also toured in a compact format to other major cities funded by other promoters.
