Welcome to AFX, the Animation Festival of Halifax! This festival is an annual gathering that celebrates all things animation from Halifax and beyond.

Our festival began as a plucky one-day event nine years ago at Carbon Arc Cinema under the name "Animation With Love." Since then, it has grown into a three-day event supported by local artists and industry alike.

We showcase the best of what the Halifax animation scene has to offer: innovative artistic achievements, friendly local industry events, thoughtful discussions, and chances for everyone to get creative. We are proud to be growing this festival by remaining true to the collective resourcefulness and hospitality of our region.

The event place in Halifax May 9-11, 2019.

We set up a camera in the lounge of 2018’s Animation Festival of Halifax 7, added animators, and presto.. instant animation!!
