The 12th Annual Roll Yer Own, ASIFA-Atlanta’s showcase of local, independent short films will be screened Monday, July 14th at 8:00 pm at the Plaza Theater, 1049 Ponce de Leon Ave NE, Atlanta, GA 30306. Admission is $5.00 at the door and $3.00 for ASIFA-Atlanta Members and students with ID. For more details, including a list of films, check out the ASIFA-Atlanta website.
ASIFA-Atlanta is celebrating International Animation Day tomorrow at the High Museum of Art, which is a bit late (it usually takes place on or about October 28th, to commemorate the opening of Émile Reynaud’s Théâtre Optique in 1892), but it is nevertheless always welcome. The screenings promise “an inspiring line-up of stop-motion, 3D, mixed-media and claymation shorts from Atlanta and beyond. All screenings are free and open to the public.”
This year’s celebration by ASIFA-Atlanta of International Animation Day, held in conjunction with Atlanta Film Festival 365 ,will be held this Sunday at the Plaza Theatre, at 7:30 pm. As usual, the screening will feature films selected from films shared by other ASIFA chapters around the world. If that’s not enough, ASIFA-Atlanta will also present two other screenings earlier that day—animation for kids 6+ at 2:00 pm and “Blowin’ Smoke, industry animation from local studios”—plus a panel previewing the evening screening at 5:30 pm.
ASIFA-Atlanta members get in free, while a day pass is $12.00, $6.00 for general admission and $3.00 for kids under 12, students and ATLFF365 members.
