SPARK ANIMATION 2017: FILM FESTIVAL
CELEBRATING THE BEST IN ANIMATION!
October 26 - 29, 2017


INTRODUCING THE WIA DIVERSITY AWARDS

Established to celebrate outstanding contributions to diversity and inclusion in the animation industry, the inaugural WIA Diversity Awards will be awarded in three categories:

  • An organization
  • An individual
  • A film

The WIA Board will select the winners of the organization and individual categories. The winner of the film category will be selected from SPARK ANIMATION 2017 festival submissions by the Festival Jury, which will be announced shortly.

With more than 60% of animation and art school students being women, and only 20% of the creative jobs are held by women, WIA is working to make it 50/50 by 2025. By working together and bringing awareness to the issue of inequality in the animation industry WIA and Spark CG want to help make this a reality.

Why do we go to the movies?

They take us to places we’ve never been before, to experience the lives of people quite different from ourselves. They offer us a window into something different, something unusual, while broadening our perspective and opening our eyes to new wonders, ideas and meaning. Such films as, The Book of Life, Sanjay’s Super Team and Maona excites our minds and hearts making us desire more. These variations enhance the movies.

The collaborative nature of animation brings together different perspectives, and divergent interests. Whether it’s a Japanese director, a woman screenwriter or LGBT animator, these creative leads offer not only values, but different viewpoints. These variations enhance business and offer greater collaborative opportunities. We need these differences, not only on the screen but behind it. At the Spark Animation Festival we embrace all of these and want to celebrate them.
