Animation Party!

Kid’s 16mm Animation Workshop + Screening

Curated by: Kelly Gallagher

Come to The Mini Microcinema to watch some of cinema’s most creatively colorful and beautiful animations! Cameraless and direct animations (animated films made directly onto film celluloid!) will be screened. Filmmaker Kelly will then teach children how to make their own direct animation films! After coloring directly onto film strips, we’ll be able to watch our collectively made animated film on the big screen together! All ages welcome! If you can color, you can animate! 

Kelly Gallagher in attendance!
