Description: The ANIMATION SHOW OF SHOWS returns to theaters across North America this fall. Featuring 10 films from seven countries, the 2019 edition of the program offers an array of highly imaginative, thought-provoking, and moving works that reflect the filmmakers unique perspectives and their relationship to the world.

Animation is an incredibly versatile medium that allows artists to explore situations and ideas that you wont see anywhere else, says ANIMATION SHOW OF SHOWS founder and curator Ron Diamond. From political and philosophical concerns, to the complexities of individual identity and personal relationships, animated short films are uniquely able to capture the many facets of human experience.
