Some festival news! I have two shorts in the Local Sightings Film Festival in Seattle this year! The Whale Story and Hula Hoop will both be screening in the ‘Experimental Shorts‘ program on October 2 at 9PM at the NW Film Forum. Also make sure to check out fellow animator Drew Christie’s dedicated retrospective on September 29th, The Drew Christie Show. The Seattle Experimental Animation Team will also have a Flying Cinema installation in the lobby throughout the festival, in case you needed yet another reason to come out!
The Whale Story is invading Toronto by screening at the Cabbagetown Short Film & Video Festival on September 7th, as well as the Regent Park Film Festival, also in Toronto (Nov 7 & 8, 2012). The Whale Story will also be screening at the Bradford Animation Festival in the UK, November 13-17. Oh how I wish I could attend that one!
