Animation Block Party is awesomeness again!!!
Animation Block Party went between Friday 7/31 to Sunday 8/2 with 6 screenings between 3 days. I only went to the opening night @ the outdoor screening in Greenpoint and the following night at BAM Rose Cinemas in Brooklyn.
A really great line up once again of awesomeness in animation! Casey Safron, ABP curator and director, received hundreds of submissions. From these, he really found some gems that are worth seeing if you like animation.
This would be a better writeup if I had appeared for every screening. As is, I was at the evening shows for Friday and Saturday nights and these are my picks:
