Animation Show of Shows comprises ten films – nine recent, along with one restored classic – which deal with both the anxieties and hopes of a world faced with a seemingly endless series of existential crises. All films are inventive, and their tones range from the whimsical to the profound, with techniques from stop-motion to hand-drawn and computer-aided.

“Animation is a natural medium for dealing with abstract ideas and deeply felt concerns, and the ANIMATION SHOW OF SHOWS has always strived to scour the world for the most affecting and engaging films,” says founder and curator Ron Diamond. “While the recent films were conceived and some finished, before the Covid lockdowns, all but the most abstract display a concern with the ways in which we are all interconnected...or sadly alienated from our sense of human connection.”
