18th Annual Animation Show of Shows
91min. Directed by Various.
The Animation Show Of Shows returns for its second year with 17 extraordinary films created by animators from Belgium, Canada, France, Israel, Korea, Latvia, Norway, Russia, Scotland, the U.K., and the U.S. Featuring animation techniques ranging from hand-drawn to stop-motion to the latest computer-generated imagery, the films have garnered many awards from festivals around the world. The collection includes two Oscar-nominated shorts, the family-friendly Piper from Pixar’s Animation Studios and Pearl from creator Patrick Osbourne. Mirror, a collaboration between The New Yorker, This American Life’s Ira Glass, and cartoonist Chris Ware, is also featured.
The 18th Annual Animation Show of Shows is unrated. There’s a 5 minute-intermission after the 13th film, this allows children 13 years and under to leave as the last four films (Corpus, Blue, Manoman, and All Their Shades) contain mature themes.
Presented as part of the "VFF at Violet Crown" series presented in partnership with Virginia Film Festival.
