Get with the Pro­gram

Animation Magazine - - Spotlight -

With more than 200 films across its of­fi­cial se­lec­tion cat­e­gories — not to men­tion out-of-com­pe­ti­tion screen­ings — at­ten­dees will get a small taste of how hard it was to nar­row down the 2,000-plus sub­mis­sions. Spe­cial pro­gram­ming this year will high­light the work of women an­i­ma­tors, as well as stu­dent films from Go­belins pay­ing trib­ute to some of the genre’s most im­por­tant fe­male fig­ures. This edi­tion also sees the re­turn of a “guest coun­try,” and the fes­ti­val will pay trib­ute to work from Spain with eight pro­grams, a DVD book and more. Of course, you have to ex­pe­ri­ence the sum­mer am­bi­ence of a view­ing at one of the four out­door screens! [
