Festival Description:
West Lake International Animation Festival is an animation art exchange platform integrating competitions, screenings, exhibitions and forums, which is held every two years.

IAF is the abbreviation of “I Animate Future”, which means “I use animation to record the future”. This is also the overall concept of the West Lake International Animation Festival – to create a pioneering camp for Chinese animation art and explore the possibility and extension of contemporary animation language.

Animation art is an art form that integrates painting, film, digital media, photography, music, literature and many other categories. The animation discipline has undergone a lot of changes since the new century, and it has tremendous development and extension in the fields of technology, concept and application. These changes affect both the way animators seeing the world and how to get along with it. Also, they are bringing animation to an important position in the broader contemporary visual culture and communication. Based on this background, IAF was founded to explore the contemporary expression of animation creation and research worldwide, and to pay attention to the interaction between innovation media and social life under the context of the times. At the same time, IAF , paying attention to the current status of animation education and discussing more possibilities, also has focused on the scene status and problem horizon of China's independent animation creation since the 21st century.
