A Unique Cultural Event

The Waterloo Festival for Animated Cinema (WFAC) is an annual film festival founded to promote appreciation for animation as a viable medium for mature cinematic storytelling, and to review, celebrate and enjoy animated feature films as works of art, in the venue they were meant to be seen in: a theatre. Now in its third year, the WFAC is developing into a unique cultural event, offering the best animated feature films from around the world in an artistic yet accessible forum.

The Power of Animation

Following the success of the first two festivals, the 2003 WFAC returns with a greatly expanded programme, featuring animated feature films from around the world. In addition to premieres and award-winning entries from other prestigious film festivals, the WFAC will present a retrospective programme of animated feature films from Japan that demonstrate the versatility and power of animation in moviemaking.

Crosses the Barriers

The WFAC aims at two demographics: the animation fan (14+ years of age), and the film festival and foreign film audience (25-55 years of age). We have aimed to, and are succeeding in making the age/generation gap at the Festival disappear. The love of animation truly crosses these boundaries.

A Non-Profit, Community Venture

The WFAC is an unincorporated, non-profit organisation, guided by a small executive committee. The Festival is run completely by volunteers, drawing upon assistance from the local community, the local government and various cultural agencies. All festival monies go towards the Festival.
