Saturday, July 25, 2009

5:00 pm - 6:00 pm What Is an Animated Film?-- Many people view animation as a genre. Like "westerns" and "science fiction," animation has come to follow a few tightly defined sets of conventions—anime, funny animal, and fairy tales form the basis of most animated cartoons. But animation is much more than just that. It is a medium capable of expressing a wide range of styles and stories. In this screening and talk, Stephen Worth, director of the ASIFA-Hollywood Animation Archive, presents examples of animated films that don't follow the established formulas—films that experiment with technique and storytelling to push the envelope of the definition of animation. Room 3

Hope to see you at the Con!
