SPARK ANIMATION 2018: FILM FESTIVAL
CELEBRATING THE WORLD'S FINEST ANIMATED FILMS
October 25 - 28, 2018


In the world of animation, the films we love stay with us. We remember the laughter, the fears, the challenges, and joys of characters brought to life on the screen through the wonders of CG to stop-motion. SPARK ANIMATION celebrates the impact of animation on today’s entertainment industry and honours the diversity of films and techniques in the field.


Film Festival: October 25–28, 2018

Our festival team has scoured all corners of the globe, connecting with film festivals from around the world, to bring together the finest animated content on the planet. After vetting hours upon hours of film, our Festival Jury members, comprised of independent creators, directors, studio executives, educators, and industry leaders, have selected the finest and latest features and shorts in the world of animation.

From independent animation to special premieres, CG to stop-motion, the Jury’s 2018 selections cover the full spectrum, ranging from the roots of the medium, to films created with the advanced technologies now available to studios and independent filmmakers. There is something in this year’s schedule for every fan of film, animation, and powerful storytelling.


Catch a film for a cause

All proceeds from this year’s film festival (except PayPal fees & GST) will be donated to Covenant House Vancouver.

SPARK CG is proud to support Covenant House Vancouver in their effort to help the more than 1,400 homeless and at-risk youth, aged 16 to 24, who will reach out to them for help this year.

Since 1997, Covenant House Vancouver has been helping youth to get off Vancouver’s streets. They do this through a carefully designed Continuum of Care, which includes a daily drop-in, a 54-bed residential crisis program, a transitional living program, relapse prevention, and life-skills training.
