Submit your animated short to Austin Film Festival!!!!

Austin Film Festival is now in full swing and we want to see your animated short. We’re looking for films that inhabit a solid narrative structure and relay a fully-formed and impactful story.
The Animated Short program is one of our most exciting and successful categories. Each year the winning animated short is Academy Award-eligible, and over the past three years, two of the winners ended up getting nominated. In 2011 William Joyce, director of our winning film The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore, actually took home the Oscar. In addition, we’re set to have a stellar group of jurors, and have already announced Jay Wade Edwards from Disney TV Animation, who also produced and edited Aqua Teen Hunger Force. Selected films are also eligible for our Audience Award
The Regular Bird Deadline for the film competition is June 16th and the Late Deadline is July 15th. More information can be found at
We hope to see your film!
