ASIFA-SF’s Annual Winter Screening & Party
Sunday, January 13 6pm at Oddball Films
Come celebrate, network, eat, drink and laugh. ASIFA-SF will provide the basics. Please feel free to add to the treats. Once again this looks like a great evening of films by local artists and friends from around the globe. Anyone is welcome to bring your animated/special effects work unannounced the night of the show on DVD or 16 mm and we will show it.

– Gene Hamm was asked to animate one of Keith Knight’s comic strips. He will show it plus new work by his Alchemia students
– Michael Ocelot creates charming work in France using silhouette animation.
