Presenting 16 exceptional and inspiring animated shorts from around the world, this year’s program includes Niki Lindroth von Bahr’s Annecy Grand Prix-winning “The Burden,” a melancholy, funny and moving film that explores the tribulations, hopes and dreams of a group of night-shift employees, uniquely capturing the zeitgeist of our time. At the other end of the spectrum, David OReilly’s playful and profound “Everything,” based on the work of the late philosopher Alan Watts, explores the interconnectedness of the universe and the multiplicity of perspectives that underlie reality.
Over the years, 36 of the films showcased in the ANIMATION SHOW OF SHOWS went on to receive Academy Award® nominations, with 10 films winning the Oscar®! Founded and curated by producer Ron Diamond, the ANIMATION SHOW OF SHOWS is funded by major studios, companies, schools and hundreds of animation lovers around the world. Be the first to experience these works of art – right here at The Frida!
