The Australian International Animation Festival 2014 featured a celebrated collection of the world's finest animation for its 11th Anniversary. The festival secured amazing exclusives from more than 2,500 submissions from all around the world. The range of styles, genres and techniques is testament to the vibrancy and relevance of creative animation. The International Competition programs were made up of an eclectic mix of films and offered audiences a complete, up-to-date snapshot of the international creative animation scene. In addition to these were programs was an exclusive screening of Chris Sullivan's films and a hybrid BLEND program featuring live-action characters in animated environments. Furthermore, there were special children's shows, public seminars, and a broad representation of national filmmakers introducing the Australian Showcase. Jilli Rose premiered her latest film 'Sticky', Bernard Sullivan hosted seminar on 'Reanimating Wiradjuri language', and Mel Roach discussed writing, animating and directing shorts of Frederator and Nickelodeon in Los Angeles with her current film 'Rocket Dog'. As co-director, producer and editor for the event, I organised the venue, technical duties and marketing for the three-day event. The festival premiered on Friday 9th May to Sunday 11th May, 2014 at the Forum 6 Cinema, Wagga Wagga. The success of the event secured Wagga playing host to AIAF in 2015. This event also toured in a compact format to other major cities funded by other promoters.
