On Saturday, July 28th, the Toronto Animated Image Society (TAIS) is thrilled to present a summer night of animated dreams: two 45 minute programmes of short animated films, the results of the 2018 Anijam competition, and a new commissioned work by Amanda Low.

Featuring 18 short animated films, the finalists in this year’s programme are diverse in style and content. Including themes of self-love and aspiration, loss and struggle, narratives of deception, community and connection, and playful experimental works exploring form and sound, this year’s programme proudly features films from 6 different countries: Canada, USA, Costa Rica, UK, China, and Taiwan.

This programme is for mature audiences only.

Awards will be given – as selected by the audience, and by a guest jury of animation artists.

Also featured is TAIS’ FAN FICTION Anjiam competition. With 12 entries this year, these 10-second animations are mash-up masterpieces, with creative never-before-seen combos that hint at unique universes filled with familiar characters. For the second year in a row, the Showcase Jury’s pick for Best Anijam will be awarded a cash prize and in-kind studio use toward production of a short animated project for presentation at TAIS Showcase in 2019. The audience will also decide a Best Anijam Audience Award on the night of the screening.

The Animation Showcase is produced by the Toronto Animated Image Society, an artist-run, non-profit charitable organization dedicated to exploring and promoting the art of animation through production, screenings, workshops and exhibitions, and offering affordable access to space and equipment for artists who make animated films within contemporary art practices. TAIS is dedicated to the art of independent animation.
