This annual animation compilation fills the void left by the International Tournée of Animation, Spike and Mike’s Festival of Animation, and The Animation Show. The 19th edition of this popular touring program features 16 internationally acclaimed short films from Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Great Britain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the U.S. Among this year’s highlights are Niki Lindroth von Bahr’s extraordinary, award-winning stop-motion musical The Burden; David O’Reilly's visually stunning Everything, based on a 1973 talk given by British-American philosopher Alan Watts; Les Goldman and Paul Julian’s 1964 classic The Hangman (recently restored by the Animation Show of Shows as part of its film preservation program); and Next Door, a 1990 student film made at CalArts by two-time Oscar-winning Pixar director Pete Docter (Up). DCP. 90 min.
