Round of applause for our sponsors

Film of the Year | 3D Animation

The primary focus for this category is 3D Animation. The judges are looking for short films that are 100% computer generated. The films should be similar to what you’d expect to see from Pixar or Dreamworks. The films can still have a realistic feel to them, but if your film includes live-action plates please submit to the Visual Effects category instead.

Important Notes:

  • The judges will be reviewing complete short film or trailers, not assets or other elements that will be used in a film that hasn’t been released yet.
  • If your film in currently doing the rounds in a Short Film Festival, please include a password so the judges can view your work privately.
