Animation Guild & ASIFA-Hollywood Host Public Afternoon of Remembrance

The first month of 2021 will culminate with an event to recognize the talented contributors the world of animation lost in 2020. Hosted by The Animation Guild and ASIFA-Hollywood, the Afternoon of Remembrance is a non-denominational, virtual event to be held Saturday, January 30 from noon to 5 p.m.

A Hollywood tradition for over a quarter of a century, Afternoon of Remembrance pays tribute to all who created animation, from top industry leaders to the rank and file artists. Event co-founder and The Animation Guild President-Emeritus Tom Sito describes it as a moment to “remember, laugh, cry and share stories as we say goodbye to all our friends who left us in 2020.”

Those honored this year will include: Mickey Mouse comic-strip artist Roman Arambula, Scooby-Doo creators and collaborators Joe Ruby and Ken Spears, Disney animator Ann Sullivan and Emmy-winning animation writer David Wise.

The Afternoon of Remembrance is open to the public. Those interested in attending can register at tiny.cc/TAGAOR.

Disney animator Ann Sullivan worked on classics like The Little Mermaid, The Lion King and Lilo & Stitch.
