19th Annual Animation Show of Shows

Presented by Lark Theater at Lark Theater, Larkspur CA

Mar 30 - 31 2018
19th Annual Animation Show of Shows

16 exceptional and inspiring animated shorts from around the world.

Curator and founder Ron Diamond will be in attendance on March 30 and 31 for a Q&A.

At a time of increasing social instability and global anxiety about a range of issues, the works in this year’s ANIMATION SHOW OF SHOWS have a special resonance, presenting compelling ideas about our place in society and how we fit into the world.

“Because animation is such a natural medium for dealing with abstract ideas and existential concerns, the ANIMATION SHOW OF SHOWS has always included a number of thoughtful and engaging films,” says founder and curator Ron Diamond. “However, more than in previous years, I believe that this year’s program really offers contemporary animation that expresses deeply felt issues in our own country and around the world.”

The 19th ANIMATION SHOW OF SHOWS represents the work of artists from eight countries, including nine women. Funny, moving, engaging, and thought-provoking, the ANIMATION SHOW OF SHOWS not only has something for everyone, but is a remarkable and insightful microcosm of our world.
