Ottawa International Animation Festival (OIAF) has announced this year’s animated series competition selections. OIAF runs September 21-25 in Ottawa.
“These are not your standard Saturday morning cartoons,” said OIAF artistic director Chris Robinson. “Swearing, nudity, sex, and anything explicit is what makes the Animated Series Competition so compelling.”
