Breathing life into the inanimate and giving expression to the inert, the Festival of Animated Objects brings world-class artists to engage and entertain audiences of all ages through the innovative and sophisticated art of storytelling through mask, puppetry and animated objects.
From puppet shows to film screenings, gallery exhibitions to workshops, for 4-days and nights Calgary comes alive with original creations, mythical creatures, and curious beasts, objects, and gadgets, and thingamajigs beguiled by puppet-masters and artists alike to stir your imagination.
