20th Annual Animation Show of Shows
98min. Directed by Various.
The Animation Show of Shows returns for its 20th year to present 15 thought-provoking, poignant, and very funny animated shorts from around the world. This year’s works explore the universality of shared ideals, as well as the diverse challenges we all face. Among the program highlights is the very funny computer animation The Green Bird, winner of a 2018 Gold Student Academy Award® International Animation, which harks back to classic cartoons of the mid-20th century. Oscar-winning director John Kahrs’ Age of Sail, the latest in Google’s series of Spotlight Stories, chronicles the adventures of an old sailor who rescues a teenaged girl after she falls overboard. One Small Step, Bobby Pontillas and Andrew Chesworth’s inspiring story of a Chinese-American girl’s dream of being an astronaut, centers on her evolving relationship with her father. The beautifully designed Weekends, by Trevor Jimenez, explores the complex emotional landscape of a young boy and his recently divorced parents, as he shuttles between their very different homes and lives.
Presented as part of the VFF at Violet Crown film series in partnership with Virginia Film Festival.
