ASIFA’s Annual Holiday Party & Screening
Winners of the ASIFA-East Competition
Yes, it’s the Christmas Season but us animators never take the straight and narrow road. So we’ll be celebrating Christmas in January, with our annual 12th Night Potluck. Come celebrate, network, eat, drink and laugh. ASIFA-SF will provide the basics. Please feel free to add to the treats.
We’ll party with the top films from the longest running animation festival in the US, and present a tribute to our dearly departed pal and rogue, Don Albrecht, with a selection of outrageous moments from his best work. The whole shebang starts at 6pm on Sunday, January 8 at Oddball Films, 275 Capp, third floor (Capp runs between Mission and South Van Ness, on Capp near 18th St.) free, bring a friend, films start around 7:30.
