The 20th ANIMATION SHOW OF SHOWS represents the work of artists from six countries and includes six student films. Funny, moving, engaging, and thought-provoking, the ANIMATION SHOW OF SHOWS not only has something for everyone, but is a remarkable and insightful microcosm of our world.
For 20 years, the ANIMATION SHOW OF SHOWS has been presenting new and innovative short films to appreciative audiences at animation studios, schools and, since 2015, theaters around the world. Over the years, 38 of the films showcased in the ANIMATION SHOW OF SHOWS went on to receive Academy Award nominations, with 11 films winning the Oscar.
This year, the ANIMATION SHOW OF SHOWS will present 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, as well as 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.”
Total Running Time: 98 minutes and includes 15 films, four of which qualified † for Academy Award ® consideration.
