20th Animation Show of Shows
We have SOLD OUT of our allotment of free tickets for this program!
Fifteen thought-provoking, poignant, and very funny animated shorts from around the world, including work from six countries and six student films. In a year when the best and worst of human nature has been on constant display, the works in this year’s show remind us of both the universality of shared ideals, as well as the diverse challenges we face. A remarkable and insightful microcosm of our world. “Animation is such a flexible and open-ended medium that it lends itself to exploring the innumerable aspects of what it means to be human,” says founder and curator Ron Diamond. “And this year’s program, as much as any of our past presentations, really illuminates human strengths and foibles, and the bonds that unite us across cultures and generations."
