Cardiff Independent Film Festival (CIFF) has opened its call for entries for its 2017 edition. The deadline for submissions to the 4th edition of CIFF is 13th January 2017.

CIFF has a dedicated animation strand run by Cardiff Animation Nights. The festival is calling for entries of International Animated Shorts, Welsh Animated Shorts and Animated Student Films for its animation competition programme.

Established in April this year by the team from Cardiff Animation Nights, the first animation strand at CIFF screened an eclectic selection of animated shorts from across Europe, Asia, North America, South America, and Australia. Conor Whelan’s 2D animated short Snowfall won the 2016 animation competition programme, with a special mention for Simon Cartwright’s Manoman.

CIFF’s 2016 animation strand also featured masterclasses from UK animation industry giants Aardman, ground-breaking children’s TV creator Ben Bocquelet, and Oscar-nominated Cardiff-based animation director Joanna Quinn.

CIFF 2017 will take place on the 5th, 6th and 7th May at Chapter, an independent arts venue and cinema space in the heart of Cardiff. For entry rules and submission requirements, visit the festival website at cardifffilmfest.com/submissions.

Established in October 2014, Cardiff Animation Nights runs bi-monthly screenings of award-winning independent animation from around the world at venues in Cardiff. As well as their regular events and the animation strand at CIFF, Cardiff Animation Nights is planning a packed programme of animation events for Cardiff in 2017 and 2018.
