One of the best parts of organising a film festival is watching the films when they are submitted and witnessing the work from talented animation students and animators who have devoted their time (often while holding down a day job) to bring their idea to life through the magic of animation.
2020 has been a tough year for many people. We want to recognise the efforts of the students and animators who have worked through an extraordinary time. We are calling for entries for the DAFF 2020 awards and we look forward to watching your films!
Since the first festival (2011) we have presented a Social Recognition Award. Over the last nine festivals, we have screened films that have covered areas from homelessness to depression to consent. We feel that this award is more important than ever.
