C-AniConFest© July 2, 2022
One-day event!!!
Is an Animation Short Film Festival that celebrates Superheroes anime, science fiction, fantasy, pop culture, video games, and a lot more.
Our goal is to connect schools, studios, Graphics Designers, Gamers, Artists, and filmmakers to create opportunities for all of our participants. Once a year the event will bring together the world of animation films and creators providing a premier forum to present the newest techniques as well as classic styles of the animation process. We celebrate geek culture and everything that surrounds it. Dedicated to exploring and celebrating sci-fi and fantasy genre films and filmmaking. We celebrate those artists who make the world of animation what it is today and what inspires us future artists, animators, students, and professionals who continue to pursue animation as a career. The movies we chose to select are creative, inspired, motivational, sincere, and powerful.

Our festival will showcase the best worldwide short films that fit within the main themes of the C-AniConFest©. They drive you somewhere else, or deep inside so you can learn, be motivated, inspired, discover a new perspective from the world of creative minds.

People bring their favorite character (cosplay costumes competition)
We will be celebrating our festival at the beautiful Little Haiti Cultural Center.
