Before the GIF features a selection of film and video from artists who use a wide range of animation techniques, including stop-motion, clay animation, and hand-drawn animated sketches. The majority of the works featured in the program were created after the introduction and popularization of the GIF (Graphic Interface Format), the now-ubiquitous digital animation form. As digital animation becomes increasingly sophisticated; ever more convincingly replacing live action filming, these artists explore the possibilities unique to analog animation forms whose primary goal is keen creativity, rather than mimetic trickery.
