GLAS 2018 is just around the corner! Organizers of the international festival have announced the full lineup of special programs and schedule for the third annual edition, which is set for March 22-25 in Berkeley, CA.
Highlights include a conversation with David OReilly, the creative mind behind last year’s mind-boggling Everything, along with special guests Phil Lord and Chris Miller, retrospective screenings of work from Ruth Lingford, Réka Bucsi and Boris Labbé, and a closer look at director Jorge Gutierrez’s VR short for Google Spotlight Stories, Son of Jaguar. GLAS 2018 will also include screenings of Japanese director Masaaki Yuasa’s two animated features released in 2017, Lu Over the Wall and Night is Short, Walk on Girl, and will also provide what’s billed as an “incomplete introduction” to the Zagreb school of animated films.
New for this edition, GLAS 2018 will present the FXX Elevation Award, sponsored by FX Networks. This new award recognizes excellence in animated filmmaking and will honor a film in competition that embodies distinctive characters, bold storytelling and a singular point of view. The winning director will receive a $25,000 grant to develop an original animated project with FXX.
As if that’s not enough, a brand-new trailer has been unveiled for GLAS 2018, showcasing all the excitement and buzz of the coming event:
