Squeaky Wheel announces the call for submissions for our annual Animation Fest! Celebrating its 20th year, we are proud to continue a festival showcasing artworks made in a diverse variety of animation techniques such as stop-motion, claymation, 3D animation, hand-painted film, special effects, and motion graphics. Past festivals have showcased work from both rising artists as well as established artists.

The 20th Animation Fest will be held online and in-person on Friday, November 3, 2022, an in-person screening at the Buffalo AKG Museum and a virtual screening through Squeaky Wheel. Films in the virtual program will be accessible for 24 hours thereafter for general audiences, and 72 hours for Squeaky Wheel members. If selected, you will be asked for a downloadable copy of your film.

Each individual submission should not exceed ~10 minutes.
There is no submission fee.
All selected artists will receive a screening fee of $100 per selected film. (International applicants must have a Paypal account to receive their screening fee).
All selected artists will receive a one year membership to Squeaky Wheel.
Multiple submissions per artist are accepted. Multiple submissions per artist are accepted. Artists who are African/Black, Indigenous / Native / Aboriginal, POC, creatives with disabilities, women, 2SLGBTQIA+, and artists who face systemic and structural barriers are highly encouraged to apply.
