What is Womanimation? As the name implies, it’s a festival showcasing acclaimed animated films created by women from around the world, a celebration of the story-telling power of animation, particularly in the short form.
A special edition comes to Massachusetts College of Art and Design on Saturday March 17th at 3:00 pm in the Design and Media Center (DMC) Lecture Hall, on 621 Huntington Avenue in Boston. The event is free and open to students and the general public.
The special MassArt Encore Edition of Womanimation! features ten films from the 2017 festival along with the two award-winning films from the 2016 festival.
The program is diverse in its subjects, visuals, and geography. Nine countries are represented, in styles from traditional 2-D to stop-motion to computer animation, with themes from comic documentary to bittersweet personal drama to forays into the surreal. The festival features something for every taste.
A slideshow introducing the filmmakers will precede the program, and audience members will be given ballots to select their favorite films of the program. DJ Madame B will weave soundscapes created by women across the globe before and after the screening.
