THE 20th ANNUAL ANIMATION SHOW OF SHOWS returns to theatres across North America and will have its US theatrical premiere at Laemmle Theatres in Los Angeles on December 14th, and at the Quad Cinema in New York on December 28th (many other cities will follow).
Since 1998, THE ANIMATION SHOW OF SHOWS has been selecting the best in animated short films from around the world and has been presenting new and innovative short films to appreciative audiences at animation studios, schools and, since 2015, theatres in the US and other countries. 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®.
THE 20th ANNUAL 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.”
