One of the TLF partner, FIAF of New York presents
ANIMATION FIRST FESTIVAL
Entirely Online & Nationwide • Festival Pass Only $20
“One of the essential film festivals, and a must-attend for admirers of animation.” — Hyperallergic
Join us for the fourth edition of Animation First, FIAF’s wildly successful festival celebrating the artistry of French animation! Presented entirely online, the Festival will stream across the US from February 5–15, reaching its broadest audience yet.
This year, FIAF is honored to welcome special guest Wes Anderson, who has selected a few of his favorite animated films for the Festival.
The festival opens with a bang with the US premiere of Calamity Jane, a feminist western about the early life of legendary Wild West figure Martha Jane Cannary. The film’s director Rémi Chayé will join us for a special behind-the-scenes discussion.
An affordable $20 pass provides access to the entire 11-day Festival including more than 75 US and NY premieres of feature-length and short films, works in progress presentations of highly anticipated films, a new US and French student film competition, LIVE talks with acclaimed filmmakers, interactive graphic novels, augmented and virtual reality programs, and more. Films will have English subtitles and all talks will be in English.
