GLAS ANIMATION FESTIVAL: March 3-6, 2016, Berkeley, California
The 1st annual GLAS Animation Festival takes place March 3-6, 2016 in the historic city of Berkeley, California, just a quick ride away from San Francisco. We are introducing new ideas and expanding the scope of animation by bringing new voices, new talents, new themes, and a new generation of independent filmmakers and curators to the United States. We highlight fresh voices in independent animation while curating special programs of the most significant periods of animation history that serve as an inspiration for contemporary animators.

Ghosting is an event with a non-traditional screening format in which selected works are presented in 15 minute sets with breaks in between so you can discuss, absorb, and get to know your neighbors. Co-Founders Kristel Brinshot, Ricky Jonsson Jr., and Steve Smith started Ghosting in 2013 as a way to introduce their friends to the work of new digital artists from around the world through bi-monthly screenings in a backyard in East Los Angeles. Since its formation, it has grown to become the premiere exhibition venue for experimental animation in Los Angeles, pulling together a thriving community where artists meet, hang out, and collaborate.
