18th Annual Show by ACME FILMWORKS - Co-presented with the Farnsworth

The ANIMATION SHOW OF SHOWS returns for its second year in theaters with 12 charming family-friendly films. Highlights include “About a Mother,” a new folktale with echoes of Shel Silverstein’s “The Giving Tree,” Disney/Pixar’s sweet “Piper,” and the latest in 360º storytelling in Google’s touching father-and daughter-journey “Pearl” by Academy Award® winner Patrick Osborne.

This year’s show includes an expanded selection of fresh student films from leading animation schools in the U.S., Belgium, Canada, Korea and Russia. This is not surprising, since the most interesting and groundbreaking work is being done at these hotbeds of creativity.

Featuring techniques ranging from hand-drawn to stop-motion to the latest computer-generated imagery, the 12 extraordinary films in this program were created by animators from Belgium, Canada, Korea, Latvia, Norway, Russia, Scotland, the U.K., and the U.S. The themes revolve around the central idea of family, from  deeply felt personal stories to the wacky humor that animation does so well. Many have garnered awards from prestigious festivals around the world.
