20th Annual Animation Show of Shows
Returning to theaters across North America this fall, the 20th Animation Show of Shows features 15 thought-provoking, poignant, and very funny animated shorts from around the world. 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, and the diverse challenges we face.
“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.”
Four of the fifteen films have qualified for the Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film. 2018, France, U.S., Germany, Brazil, The Netherlands, and Argentina, DCP, 98 minutes. Recommended for 13+.
