Festival Overview

Creating animated films takes time, money, and extreme patience. Animation Attack! is Atlanta, Georgia's only film festival which exclusively celebrates the art of animation. 

Animation Attack! is one of the best festivals of animation on the East Coast, showcasing the most talented animators in the world. 

Animation Attack! was created to give a voice to incredible independent artists who produce the best animated films in the world. We spotlight new artists and proven leaders in the field. We champion artists who have not only created amazing animations, but incredible stories as well.

Experience incredible animated shorts from across the globe during the event held May 21, 2016! See what's screening!

Since 2006, Animation Attack! has been a favorite of independent animators world-wide. Animation Attack! ​was originally held as an annual event in Atlanta from 2006 - 2009.  The festival then morphed into a special event held during the annual Atlanta Underground Film Festival from 2010 - 2015. In 2016, Animation Attack! returns for its 5th edition as a stand-alone festival packed with animated films of every type. All methods and techniques are celebrated: traditional, stop-motion, computer, and experimental animations are showcased during the festival.
