About the Festival: Animators Guild India Fest (AGIF) was created with the express desire to showcase a massive variety of genre-defining short films and created projects being produced throughout the world. From drama to action to horror to documentary to animation, all genres are accepted and originality is prized above all. The audiences for our film festival are a diverse and discerning group from the field of creative arts and design themselves. Originality, uniqueness, and out-of-the-box sensibilities are valued for submissions. The films will be judged by a panel of designers, filmmakers, producers, and creative people who know and love films. We are looking for dynamic scripts, direction, and performances. Films that have a good rhythm and no dead spots. Industry leaders and experts will be participating in the AGIF and so in the near future, this fest aims to provide benefits to our participants within the field of broadcast media. We look to tap into the high demand for well-curated and audience-tested creative content among networks and platforms. Updates are to be announced soon on our social media and website.
