Ottawa Reveals Kids Short & Series Contenders

OIAF-2014-150

The Ottawa International Animation Festival has announced the finalists for its Short Films for Kids and Series for Kids which will run in competition at this year’s event, taking place September 17-21. The competing films were selected from 160 short entries and 75 series entries. The judges for these categories will be local children ages 8-11, selected through a separate essay/video competition.

Last year’s Series winner, Regular Show (Cartoon Network), returns with another hilarious episode, though French animation dominates the category with three submissions. Another OIAF winner, Angela Steffen (2009 Best Student Film), will be there with her new show Patchwork Chicken. The Short category includes films from nine countries.
