1. Read This If You Want to Make Cartoons While Living in Tokyo for Free

The Japan Image Council (JAPIC) has announced that they are now accepting applications for their “Animation Artist in Residence Tokyo 2014″ program.

The project, organized by the Agency for Cultural Affairs (Bunka-cho/Government of Japan) and run by the Japan Image Council since 2010, is a residency that “aims to provide three outstanding young animation artists from around the world with an opportunity to come to Tokyo and create new works while directly interacting with Japanese animation culture.”

The artists selected will spend 70 days in Tokyo, between January 7 and March 17th, 2014. The program will provide travel expenses, living allowance, and rental accommodations, as well as the opportunity to interact with the Japanese animation community. You can read the report from this year’s program to get a sense of what will happen.

As always, there’s a catch, and this residency has one, too: you’ve got to be good. The three artists who were in the last program are all excellent filmmakers—Caleb Wood (United States), Elli Vuorinen (Finland), and Emma de Swaef (Belgium). Applicants, who must be between the ages of 20-35, need to have had one of their projects screened at an international film festival/exhibition and must submit a plan for a new animated work that is at least three minutes in length.

The application deadline for this year’s program is September 9th, 2013. To apply, go to JAPIC’s application page.

4. Submit to Cartoon Brew’s 4th Student Animation Festival

It’s that time of year again. Our annual call for entries for Cartoon Brew’s 4th Student Film Festival, a yearly showcase of outstanding student films from around the globe. We received over 200 submissions for last year’s festival, and aim to top that number this year.

Our mission for the festival is simple: to draw attention to student-produced animated shorts and share them with the widest possible community of industry artists, fellow students and animation fans. And not just any student films, but films of the highest caliber…the most original, the most thought-provoking, the ones that make us laugh hardest and engage us emotionally. Of course, we present student films throughout the year on Cartoon Brew, but we want the festival to draw even more attention to the exciting work being produced by the art form’s emerging talents.

Every filmmaker whose work is selected to screen in Cartoon Brew’s Student Animation Festival will receive $500 US. This year, special guest judge Evan Spiridellis, the co-founder of JibJab, will select one additional film to receive the Grand Prize and a $1,000 cash prize.

Cartoon Brew’s Student Animation Festival is made possible by the generous support of our sponsor JibJab, a company that has shown consistent commitment to supporting young and emerging talent. We are proud to recognize them as the sponsor of this festival.


  1. Your film has to be animated. (Obviously.)
 Your film has to be a student work. (Even more obvious.)
  3. Must have been completed after May 1, 2012.

  4. Must be an online premiere. (Films that are accessible online to the public will not be considered.)

  5. Submissions due by Friday, May 31, 2013.


To submit, send an email to studentfest (at) cartoonbrew (dot) com with the following info:

  • Your name, school and country

  • Film title and synopsis

  • Private link & password (ex: Password-Protected Vimeo/Unlisted YouTube link).


Up to 8 films will be selected for this year’s festival. We will announce the festival selections in early to mid-June. Screenings will begin on Cartoon Brew in late June. Every film that is selected to screen as part of the Cartoon Brew Student Film Festival will be paid a screening fee of $500(US). One of the selected films will be awarded the Grand Prize and a $1,000 cash award. We don’t assume any exclusivity or ownership of your film. In other words, you are still free to submit to festivals, sell it to distributors, and post it anywhere else on the Internet shortly after it debuts online in our festival.

6. Call for Entries: Athens Animation Festival

Cartoon Brew is proud to be a media sponsor of the Athens Animation Festival, a first-year event that will take place in upstate New York. The festival, organized by East Coast animation producer Lisa Thomas, has a unique and worthy mission to showcase non-commercial animated films that speak about the human condition. More specifically:

The goal of the Athens Animation festival is to provide a venue to exhibit animaton with a message to the public and to foster an appreciation for social/political animaton while generating a dialogue within the community. In a time when animation is often created primarily to serve commercial needs or presented strictly as entertainment, our festival seeks to program animation with a strong message about the world we live in and the problems, joys, fears and issues we face, be they personal, local or global.

The festival will take place on Saturday, September 15, in Athens, which is two hours north of New York City. The deadline to submit films to the festival is July 1. Submission forms are located on the festival website.
