Big Screen Plaza Presents Two Animation Screenings

Cartoon Brew is pleased to present our second annual Student Film Festival.

Press Release from Big Screen Plaza

Cartoon Brew is pleased to present our second annual Student Film Festival.

Our mission for the festival is simple: to share and promote student-produced animated shorts of the highest caliber…the most original, the most thought-provoking, the ones that make us laugh hardest and engage us emotionally. We know that students are producing some of the most exciting work in the animation art form today and we want to show this work to our broad community of industry artists and animation aficionados. This year, not only will our festival selections debut on the Cartoon Brew home page, we’ve also arranged an outdoor screenings of the films at Big Screen Plaza in New York City.

The Big Screen Plaza a 30 ft. x 16.5 ft. HD Format LED screen located at the 10,000 sq. ft. public plaza adjacent to a new 54-story multi-use venue on 6th Avenue between 29th and 30th Street, access behind the Eventi Hotel.

Twins Are Weird present Warm and Un-fuzzy Films: a special animation screening of unique and surreal independent shorts from around the world.

Join Noelle Melody and Joy Vaccese for an international program featuring a diverse selection of art.  The films themes range from the hermetic world of bullfighting, reinvented and reinterpreted to a stop motion sculpture of twenty-one large triangles animated in Melbourne, Australia’s Federation Square to a home made girl’s journey around the world with her dog as they collect their new but still perfect selves.  All films are expressions the individual vision of the artist, but their common thread is they are all uniquely beautiful.

Selected Films Include:Place Stamp Here By Noelle Melody, Joy Vaccese, and Kelly Sharp
