To present the festival, we will be hosting concurrent looping screenings of the animation selections in an Oakland venue in August (date and location forthcoming), free and open to the public. This will be followed by a ticketed award ceremony. If your film is selected for the program, you will receive a complimentary ticket to the ceremony in which we will be screening the top 2 films and an honorable mention from each category, and viewer’s choice awards.
The films and their presenters will be publicly announced via social media the day the viewing period opens. Also to be announced are the identities of the jurors, who will come from the San Francisco Bay Area Art and Animation scene and beyond.
There is a required submission fee of $25. One submission per person.
About: ASG programming stands out because of our drive to provide emerging and mid-career artists with opportunities to take great risks and, in so doing, engage viewers in new and dramatic ways. ASG encourages bold projects of this kind, and then helps make them possible by enlisting the team’s technical knowledge in service of the artist’s vision. Each year since our launch in 2011, ASG has produced 5-6 solo exhibitions, 2-3 group exhibitions, and a number of special lectures, film screenings, literary events, and performances. We also provide a public platform for films, lectures, and performances by innovative regional artists and thinkers whose work ignites deeper engagement and discussion.
