2nd L.A. Animation Fest to Fete Vinton

The Los Angeles Animation Festival will pay tribute to stop-motion innovator Will Vinton in its second annual edition, set for Dec. 2-5.

The festival will take place at Cinefamily’s theater, located at 611 N. Fairfax, and will include a 35 mm screening of Vinton’s The Adventures of Mark Twain.

Tentative plans include a retrospective of MTV animation and a range of shorts from experimental to anime.

The festival also will throw several parties and host three contests, which are:

  • Unfinished Masterpieces, an opportunity for animators to submit their unfinished projects.
  • Character Screen-test, in which the best character gets the prize.
  • And Dangerous Experiments, an anything-goes contest that encourages the most way-out interpretations of the word animation.

The festival is being put on by co-directors Miles Flanagan, owner and lead director of Parallax Studioworks  and John Andrews, executive producer of production company ka-chew!, in conjunction with their partner, the non-profit Cinefamily.

Further information on the contests, including submission deadlines, can be found at the festival website www.laafest.com
