This is your chance to talk back to the movie industry! We invite you to cast your vote for best feature and best short animation in the festival. Based on your choices, we will be awarding the Tower Audience Awards to the winning filmmakers at the Berkeley Closing Night party, January 14th. Additionally, the folks behind the scenes will be doling out the IndieFest Staff Prize to the film we think has proven itself to be the most kick ass production in the program.



In an effort to recognize and support both the public's increasing appreciation of animation and the talented animators striving to get their work seen, the IndieFest has added short animation to this year's program. To this end we've used the past as a model and will be showing one short animation before each feature in the festival. On Tuesday, January 11, all of these short animations will have their own showcase when they screen together in our New Animation Showcase. From old fashioned cel and puppet animation to the latest in computer animated work (including the 1999 Academy Award winner BUNNY, playing Opening Night) you will be amused, enlightened and impressed by the talents of these wonderful short animators.
