Third Annual Zimbabwean Animation Festival On This Weekend

The 3rd annual Zimbabwe Festival of Afrikan Inspired Animation (ZIMFAIA) is on this year from the 7th to the 9th of December at Alliance Francaise. The theme for this year is “EAT.SLEEP.ANIMATE”.

When it was launched 3 years ago  by the Joint Afrikan Animation Group (JAAG) it was the first of its kind in Africa.

This year, the industry’s finest animators and technically elite artists from Harare, Bulawayo as well as from France and Germany, will be in attendance, some of whom will be facilitating exciting and innovative workshops catering for both adults and children.

There will be an ‘Advertisers Conference’ on the 8th where professionals from the various Ad agencies, animation & digital media & corporate decision makers will come together to discuss the possibilities & the future of the advertising industry. On the 9th the JAAG Conference will take place where members of the digital arts community will meet to unveil & discuss upcoming projects for 2013.

Local and international screenings will be taking place during the course of the festival, as well as a  gaming tournament.

All members of society are welcome to attend this exciting event! It is not just for the geeks. It is a chance to see the imagination of some of our Zimbabwean animators.
