BEST OF OTTAWA ANIMATION FESTIVAL
April 19 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm$5 – $7
If you’re a fan of animation, odds are you already know the Ottawa International Animation Festival—it’s considered by many the top animation festival in North America. For one night Ypsilanti’s Riverside Arts Center will host a “best of” program from their 2018 edition. Short animated films from around the world will test our understanding of our relationship to ourselves, our parents, our partners and even to our planet.
The Best of Ottawa 2018 showcase offers a sampling of exceptional animated short films that explore moments of humor, profundity, and inspiration. The works in this collection provide a unique cross-section of some of the best contemporary film artists from around the world.
In Facing It, Sam Gainsborough shows a young man’s struggle to deal with uncomfortable feelings through life-sized clay animation. Multiple 2018 award winner My Dead Dad’s Porno Tapes uses physical objects from his family’s past to reconcile a difficult understanding of his father. Fest and Bird Milk challenge form and technique and provide two fine examples of experimentation in the short form through two often opposing platforms – 3D computer and 2D cameraless animation.
