GLAS Animation Festival


Years running: 8 (since 2015)

GLAS Animation Festival

International Competition Animation Festival.


We are introducing new ideas and expanding the scope of animation by bringing new voices, new talents, new themes, and a new generation of independent filmmakers and curators to the United States. We highlight fresh voices in independent animation while curating special programs of the most significant periods of animation history that serve as an inspiration for contemporary animators.

At GLAS Animation Festival we have a complete short film competition program as well as retrospectives, special curated programs, Q&As, behind the scene screenings and panels, animation installations and more. GLAS Animation Festival unites the animation community with the Berkeley and Bay Area community, sharing great and unique animated works from around the world.
