The 19th ANNUAL ANIMATION SHOW OF SHOWS features 16 exceptional and inspiring animated shorts from around the world. At a time of increasing social instability and global anxiety about a range of issues, the works in this year’s show have a special resonance, presenting compelling ideas about our place in society and how we fit into the world.
Returning to theaters across North America, the 20TH ANNUAL 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.
The Animation Show of Shows is presented by the Lyceum Series in coordination with the Animation Program in the Department of Art and Design and the Cinema Series at Augusta University.
