CTIAF is a reflection of the local animation industry and business is booming! With this in mind we have split our festival into two incredible events.

The first was with FAME Week Africa which was held alongside MIP Africa, 24 – 26 August 2022. This event is set to become the continent’s unrivalled cornerstone of business development for the film, arts, media and entertainment industries.

The second will be our creative focused event which will be hosted with Comic Con in April 2023. This edition will cater to artists and will feature talks and workshops, networking and skill sharing.

"Gale of the Cape" is about a vivacious cumulus cloud as she journeys through the scenic Cape to Table Mountain on her morning skate - kicking up a hell of a breeze on the way. The theme follows Gale from the Cape of Good Hope to the serene Cape Point Nature Reserve, around the spectacular Slangkop lighthouse, through bustling Hout Bay to the iconic Table Mountain.
