Screening begins: 8:00pm
The Animation Festival 2008 presents an eclectic compilation of
visually stunning animated shorts. The screening will consist of a
cross-section of experimental work being made by some of the most
talented contemporary animators of today. They range from Chicago
Underground Film Festival winner Martha Colburn's violent and chaotic
take on American culture, to celebrated Chicago filmmaker Jim
Trainor's darkly subversive visions, and the Canada-based Barry
Doupe's ritualized and dream-like world constructed in 3D landscapes.
A full list of participating artists include:
The show begins at 7:00 PM with a gallery showcase of selections of original artwork from some of the animators, as well as music, popcorn and other concessions. The lights dim at 8:00 as the presentation of the animated shorts begins. The show continues after the screening with more music and drinks.
