Calling all animation fans! Animation Is Film is a major animation festival produced by GKIDS in collaboration with Annecy International Animation Film Festival and Variety. The event takes place every October at the historic TCL Chinese 6 Theatres in Hollywood, CA, with the goal of filling a gap in the market by launching a world class animation festival in the United States. Embracing the highest aspirations of animation as a cinematic art form on par with live action, the festival is an advocate for filmmakers who push the boundaries of their work to the fullest range of expression that the medium is capable of.
