20th Annual Animation Show of Shows. Encore Screenings

Special Encore Screenings.

Returning to theaters across North America this fall, 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.”

The producers of The 20th Annual Animation Show of Shows advise parental discretion as one of the 15 animated short films has a chicken getting it’s head chopped off and the last film has two dramatic dream scenes (shot of a tv has an accidental propellor beheading and another shot with a stumbling man ablaze.)
