Brooklyn-based fest will celebrate its 15th edition with DreamWorksTV premieres, special T-shirts and live animated comedy.
Animation Block Party will celebrate its 15th annual animation festival with an opening night celebration July 26 that will feature the debut episodes of two new shows from DreamWorksTV.
The DreamWorksTV premieres are: Baby Crockett, a show about a baby, alongside his raccoon friend Buddy attempting to tame the wilderness with complete lack of knowledge and experience; and Kip Van Creepy, about a boy delivering pizza to ghosts, Dracula and the Mummy.
The event will feature a special Animation Block Party T-shirt launch from Brooklyn Cloth, a lifestyle brand inspired by the energetic surf and skate scene in all five boroughs of New York City.
The celebration will be highlighted by a live animated comedy showcase from Picture This!, starring the best comedians in New York having their jokes drawn live by artists from The Tonight Show and BoJack Horseman.
Animation Block Party 2018 will run from July 26-29, with the opening night celebration at Littlefield, located at 635 Sackett St., Brooklyn, NY 11217.
The opening night party will be followed by three days of festival screenings, retrospectives, panel discussions and world premieres at BAMcinématek, 30 Lafayette Ave., Brooklyn, NY 11217.
