Welcome to Dublin Animation Film Festival! We are now celebrating our 7th Festival in 2017. The story of how the festival started, the extraordinary dedication and support from the local community, animators, film fans and family to make a dream a reality, deserves its own film script!

The festival will take place on 20 and 21 October – we will have a programme of events for children, screenings of the shortlisted films and welcoming a very special guest who will be taking questions after the screening of his feature film! So keep checking these pages during the summer for updates!

We are delighted to announce our call for entries – click here for the rules and entry forms. We would like to remind you that we do not accept late entries – the closing date for receipt of films is 31 July 2017. So enter your film now!

Finally, we have listed the people and businesses who have supported the festival throughout the years on our Supporters page. Be sure to take a look and please support our sponsors, because they supported us!

We look forward to welcoming you to DAFF2017 in October!
