OIAF is the largest animation festival of its kind in North America, attracting film buffs, art lovers, filmmakers, and cartoon fans from around the world to the nation’s capital. The Best of Ottawa programme showcases many audience favorites and award winners from the OIAF Official Competition. This year's highlights include Pjotr Sapegin’s heart-warming The Last Norwegian Troll, Stephen Irwin’s riveting grand-prize winner Moxie, and the hilarious crowd-favourite The Goat and the Well.
