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 animation artists who produce the best animation 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.
