Thanks to all who participated in our previous fest!
Animation and imagination went hand in hand at the 6th Annual Animation With Love Festival. The lineup included feature films from Japan, Spain and the United States, as well as Canadian and International shorts programs, two panel discussions, a networking lounge, and a Saturday mixer with music by Jont Openheart. It was our biggest year yet and for 2018 we hope to grow a little more!
