Submissions Open for the Midwest Animation Celebration

The deadline for submissions to the Midwest's first and only Animation Celebration, sponsored by the Midwest Association of Professional Animators and CinemaKC, is August 21, 2012.

Kansas City, KS -- Do you have an animated short or feature that you would like to see on the LARGEST screen in the state of Kansas (75 x 100 ft.)? What about screening them along side some of entertainment's hottest animators working in the Kansas City metro area? How about getting feedback right from the artists? MAPA and CinemaKC are joining forces to make that dream a reality.

The Midwest Association of Professional Animators (MAPA) is proud to propose a joint partnership with CinemaKC in bringing the Midwest its first and only Animation Celebration on Saturday, Sept. 8, 2012. The event will be held at the Boulevard Drive-in, 1051 Merriam Lane, Kansas City, KS 66103.

This rare opportunity will give student, amateur and professional animators a chance to screen, discuss and answer questions about their respective works side-by-side.  Furthermore, the Boulevard's ground camera will give willing artists a chance to make their own silver screen debuts and talk about their works before our live audience.

All submissions should be on DVD or a .mov file in H.264. They must all include a complete credit list. There is no cost for submission. Check out the Midwest Association of Professional Animators blog for further details and to submit an entry. The deadline for submissions is August 21, 2012.
