11th Annual TAIS Animation Showcase AWARD WINNERS

Toronto Animated Image Society is thrilled to announce the award winners from the 11th Annual TAIS Animation Showcase for the TAIS Showcase Jury Awards – Grand Prize and Best Anijam, and the Audience Awards for Best Short Film and Best Anijam.

 

ON SATURDAY, JULY 29th, TAIS announced the award recipients for the 11th annual TAIS Animation Showcase from a programme featuring 20 short animated films, and 20 Anijams (10-second long micro animations).
 
The finalists and Anijams were adjudicated by a Guest Jury comprised of Michael Fukushima, Adrienne Crossman, and Nicolas Sassoon. The large audience who gathered for the screening (our biggest ever) also selected the winners for two Audience Awards.
