Waterloo Festival For Animated Cinema

Waterloo Festival for Animated CinemaThe Waterloo Festival for Animated Cinema (WFAC) is an annual international film festival for animated feature films.

The festival was founded in 2001 to promote appreciation for animation as a narrative medium for mature cinematic storytelling, and to review and celebrate animated feature films in the venue they were meant to be seen: a theatre.

The festival is unique in its focus on feature animation. Its selection of films suggests a desire to create bridges: from audience to animator, from anime to non-anime, and most obviously from mature audiences to mature films, which simply happen to be animated. The programme is also surprisingly comprehensive – in its first year the festival was dedicated mainly to anime, but it has since become much more international. Perhaps reflecting its focus, WFAC has presented more animated feature films in public exhibition than any other festival in the world.

One interesting development since 2003 has been the festival’s Tidbits programme, developed to search out and promote the creation of feature films by one single artist or very small groups, made possible by advancements in technology.
