2019 VIRTUAL PROGRAM

Welcome!

We're excited to have you. This is our fourth year of the Florida Animation Festival, and we can't wait to show you all the ways we've made it better than ever for our guests. 

Below you'll find each event in chronological order for the weekend, with descriptions, more info, and a place for tickets. On the day of the screening, simply show the FAF volunteer at the theater's entrance the virtual receipt for your ticket, and prepare to sit back and enjoy the show!

For more information, visit our FAQ, or shoot us a message!  

We will try to not adjust the schedule but sometimes life happens and we gotta do what we gotta do!

 

A note about ratings: The ratings are based on our collective best judgement as a selection committee, our judges, and even asking the submitters to rate their own work. We refer everyone to the MPAA guidelines, however we're aware that perhaps we're a bit *too* conservative rating something as PG-13 when it could be PG, or PG for a G...  If you're curious about how ratings work, there's a great documentary on the subject from 2006, This Film is Not Yet Rated.
