'Animation Nights New York' Announces 'ANNY Best Of Fest'

Animation Nights New York (ANNY) is a successful monthly screening event that has been screening independent shorts from animators around the world for about a year now. It's also (in the interests of full disclosure) the creation of our very own Yvonne Grzenkowicz so it's something that's very close to our hearts. To mark a year of the event, this September ANNY has announced the first ANNY Best Of Fest to take place at South Street Seaport.

The festival will screen a selection of 20 of the best films from the past year's screenings, selected by a panel of invited judges. We are thrilled to be able to reveal that AFA will also be involved and we will be presenting the first Animation For Adults award! The award will be voted on by AFA's staff. More details will be confirmed later.

The festival will take place September 29th and 30th 2016 also include a selection of other panels and events.
The current schedule includes

  • Art In Motion (in Association with Anderson Contemporary)
  • Virtual Reality Showcase
  • Animation As Outreach
  • Cartoons On Film Panel with Animation Historian/Archivist Tommy Stathes
  • ANNY Best of Fest Screening (Parts 1 and 2).
We should be able to reveal more details about AFA's plans for the fest in the near future, so stay tuned. Tickets are now available from Eventbrite
