About Us

Who We Are

Since 2005, East Tennessee State University has brought you this annual, curated showcase of work from animators of all skill levels—from all corners of the world.

Our Festival

Every summer, ETSU students and faculty of the Digital Media Program gather entries from around the world and organize screenings of the films in downtown Johnson City during the summer arts and music festival circuit. 


Every animation is judged by industry professionals to award a winner in each of the Student, Professional, Independent and Audience Choice categories and a Critic's Choice award goes to the best animation overall.
