Squeaky Wheel's 14th Animation Fest
Friday 1st Sep, 2017
Albright-Knox Art Gallery1285 Elmwood Avenue Buffalo, NY 14222
Squeaky Wheel’s Animation Fest returns for its 14th year with animations by emerging and established artists from around the world! Designed for ages 6 and up, this family-friendly affair is an annual showcase culled from a public call for submissions and features some of the most innovative artists working across various media.
This year’s 49 minute program will take place once again at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery during M&T First Friday. Demonstrating a wide range of animation methods, from stop-motion, hand-drawn works, pieces made with open source custom software, analogue video effects, and more, the program tells stories about diverse forms of existence and the nature of life. The screening includes works such as a philosophical science fiction film, a screen-printed life story, an absurd domestic drama, and a mysterious trip towards enlightenment, among others. Throughout the program you will witness all kinds of transformations, either of life itself or of emotions that lead to surprising outcomes. Bring your family, and bring your friends!
