GLAS Animation continues its mission to showcase the newest groundbreaking independent animation, with the announcement of a new theatrical venture: ANIMATION NEXT. The program will present a collection of animated short films to theater-goers across the United States this fall.
The new initiative will smash together the best of the best from the annual GLAS Animation Festival in Berkeley, California. The first run will spotlight seven bold shorts from the newest generation of filmmakers redefining what is possible in animation. With this prismatic visual journey, GLAS hopes to create a context and language for a shared understanding and appreciation of animation.
