CAFF, the Cultural Animation Film Festival is designed to showcase unique animated films based on the cultures of who we are. Our hopes is that these films will shed a better light on who we are as a people. We also hope that CAFF will inspire animators both new and seasoned from around the world to create films and share their stories.

Guidelines for submission are pretty straight forward. Animated films can be of any length but must tell a cultural based or "culture of" story. Animation/live action combo, video game demos and experimental films are also accepted for submission however animation reels will not be accepted. ​Aside from submission judging, this is a non competitive festival.

*Please note, live action films will be disqualified.

When submitting films please include the following:
Directors name(s)
Animators name(s)
Synopsis of film
A film viewing link
Culture represented
Is this a school or student project?
Company's name (if applicable)​

    An absolutely fabulous Festival. Great communication. You could tell the enthusiasm and love of children's creativity. The festival would be very high on my "must go to pick up ideas" list, but much too far away from Oxford. Thank you for all the very hard work you must put in
