DIY Animation Club writes about animated shorts that embody the DIY ethic. We welcome the messy, the edgy, the mysterious, and most of all the very, very personal.

We have a very strong preference for emotional, narrative animated shorts that feel emblematic of a specific personal vision, especially those made using physical techniques, including hand-drawn on paper, stop-motion, paper cutout, paint-on-glass, stratch-on-film, object, and abstract experimental animated shorts.

Accepted films will be featured on the Screening Room page of DIY Animation Club's website (via embed).

A nominal submission fee is in place to prevent haphazard submissions (an epidemic on FilmFreeway for zero-fee listings). If the fee represents a financial hardship, please let us know and we will be happy to give you a waiver.
