4 days of animation feature films, shorts workshops, panel discussions, interactive performances and parties at The Montréal International Animation Film Festival, in association with Teletoon, www.filmfestivals.com and MTL Digital Spring (Printemps Numerique) has just wrapped up with its closing gala and award ceremony.
Festival director Laurie Gordon said, "with such a great line-up it was tough to pick out any winners. Every screening was a highlight and any number of films could have won their respective categories. Congratulations to all of our winners. The preparations for Le MIAFF 2016 are already underway – see you next year!"
Fighting off the weather and playoff hockey, the inaugural Le MIAFF was a great success, attracting hardcore film fans, casual viewers and industry representatives alike. The festival will be back in 2016 with another Ani-mazing selection of films, parties and industry panels, plus lots more surprises and events. The Le MIAFF team thanks everybody involved for helping to make this year’s festival such a fun weekend!
