Womanimation! 2017 at AS220 Main Stage – One Day Only

Womanimation!, the premiere showcase in the United States of international women’s animated short films, returns to Rhode Island for a special one-day only engagement at AS220 in Providence on Saturday, July 8th.

Exhibiting a select program of twelve short films from Europe and Asia, the festival blends styles such as traditional 2-d hand drawing, stop motion, and computer animation.

With several US premieres, and all New England premieres, the festival offers a rare chance for local audiences to sample the world of women’s animation.

Though all of the films clock in at less than twelve minutes, they present compelling narratives with distinctive viewpoints within that short time.

Themes run the gamut from confronting one’s inner demons in the dream world to exploring the wonders of the natural world, from dealing with loss of loved ones to forging new human connections.

The festival program will screen at 4pm, 6pm, and 8pm, with a reception following the final screening featuring DJ Madame B creating international soundscapes. Tickets are available online and at the door for $10.
