SFFILM Education is excited to announce an upcoming program to celebrate the holiday season with Bay Area based animation studio Tonko House. This special event, hosted by SFFILM Education is part of our Family Programming initiative, and is free and open to the public. Advance RSVP is required.
Since 2014, SFFILM Education has been proudly supporting and showcasing the beautiful filmmaking and storytelling from this local treasure of the independent animation community, founded by former Pixar art directors Robert Kondo and Dice Tsutsumi.
This event, perfect for families and grown up fans of independent animation will feature a screening of the short film Moom alongside some other studio classics. Audience members will also be treated to never-been-shown-before sneak peaks of yet to be released work.
Following the screening, Tonko House artist Ryan Matias will share his secrets to becoming a professional artist and lead an interactive workshop including artwork demos by Tonko House artists Lia Tin and JJ Song.
Children in attendance will also be eligible to win special Tonko House holiday prizes. The presentation will be followed by a meet & greet session where attendees will have an opportunity to get autographs and photos with all of our guests, including founders Dice Tsutsumi and Robert Kondo.
