The Ottawa International Animation Festival was founded in Ottawa, Canada in 1975, with the first festival held from August 10 to 15 in 1976.[1] Initially organized by the Canadian Film Institute on a biennial basis and with the co-operation of the International Animated Film Association), the Festival organization now remains in the hands of the CFI. It moved from a biennial to an annual festival in 2005.

The Ottawa International Student Animation Festival ran on alternate years from the professional festival from 1997 until 2003. In 2005, it joined its counterpart to form the newly annual combined festival.
