    Ottawa International Animation Festival

    Celebrating 40 years, the Ottawa International Animation Festival returns to the National Gallery of Canada. As one of the festival partners, we’ll welcome fans of all ages for screenings and showcases featuring some of the world’s most cutting-edge, thoughtful, funny and provocative animation films.

    National Gallery members can benefit from a single ticket price of $9.* 

    *NOTE: You will need to present your NGC Member card when collecting your tickets.

    There’s also a ton of great stuff for families at the Festival! Join us in the Scotiabank Great Hall on Saturday 24 September from 11 am to 4 pm to make your own animated flipbook. Adult accompaniment required.

    Enjoy animation films and activities in Ottawa from September 21–25!
