Every 2 years the Festival of Animated Objects awakens the inanimate, giving expression to the inert. This festival 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, Calgary comes alive with original creations, mythical creatures and curious beasts, objects, gadgets, and thingamajigs beguiled by puppet-masters and artists alike to stir your imagination. It’s a month filled with magic, wonder and whimsy!
