VFF at Violet Crown: 19th Annual Animation Show of Shows

The '19th Annual Animation Show of Shows' returns with 16 exceptional and inspiring animated shorts from around the world. At a time of increasing social instability and global anxiety about a range of issues, the works in this year’s show have a special resonance, presenting compelling ideas about our

place in society and how we fit into the world. These films include Niki Lindroth von Bahr’s Annecy Grand Prix-winning 'The Burden,' a melancholy, funny and moving film that explores the tribulations, hopes and dreams of a group of night-shift employees, uniquely capturing the zeitgeist of our time. At the other end of the spectrum, David OReilly’s playful and profound 'Everything,' based on the work of the late philosopher Alan Watts, explores the interconnectedness of the universe and the multiplicity of perspectives that underlie reality. Also included is the 1964 classic 'Hangman,' by Paul Julian and Les Goldman, which was recently restored as part of the Animation Show of Shows film preservation program. As a special treat, the Show of Shows will also be presenting 'Next Door,' a 1990 student film made at Cal Arts by the two-time Oscar-winning Pixar director Pete Docter.

This screening is part of our VFF at Violet Crown Series, a year-round, co-curated selection of films presented in partnership with Violet Crown Charlottesville. All screenings in the series will start at 7:30 PM, and tickets will be available for $9.00.
