A slew of SEAT animators have pieces in this year’s Local Sightings Film Festival, a showcase of work from the Northwest organized and held at the NW Film Forum here in Seattle. It runs from Oct 1-6, and the most animation is in the ‘Drawn to Moving’ program on October 2nd at 7PM. Here are the films by SEAT filmmakers:
