Silent Animation

Cartoons Go West

UC Berkeley will be hosting it’s second annual 3 day seminar focused on silent film at the Pacific Film Archive and Berkeley Art Museum on Feb 21-23. The final day, Saturday has several panels of interest to animation fans:
“(Not) Being There: Anachronistic Dislocation in The Lost World (1925)”
“Where, and What, is the World of Animated Films?”
Keynote: Donald Crafton “Animation Goes West: The Geo-Ideological Construction of Silent Cartoon Styles”
Registration seems to be free, but they request that you pre-register

I have no idea if they will show any Felix and those cartoons were made in New York, but if any character is associated with silent animation it’s him.  And hey, he’s going to Hollywood in that cartoon.
