Bay Area Animation at PFA (Aug 24 & 28)
The Bay Area has a long history of artists creating exceptional animation. Two programs will showcase the unique visions and rich imaginations of animators who work or have worked locally. Enjoy their humor, journey into wonderful worlds, and even ponder a statement or two about the human race. We think you will agree that Bay Area animators rank right up there with the most creative minds in cinema. Programmed by ASIFA-SF president Karl Cohen and Kathy Geritz.
