Screening! Calendars! NYC!

If you're in NYC on Thursday Nov 12 at 7 PM and are looking for a new Calendar and some cartoons, then I've got good news for you. The fine folks at ASIFA-East (the society of animators) are unveiling their new benefit calendar, featuring 12 months of cartoons and drawings by leading East Coast animators (I got to do December).

Additionally, they'll be screening contributors films, including this years animated Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! Animator/director Pete List is planning to attend to answer any questions you might have (he may even chat about the upcoming version of The Pigeon Finds a Hotdog!).

Other animators include a who's who of East Coast talent, meaning you'll get to see awesome films by Bill Plympton, John Dilworth, Michael Sporn, Kristy Caracas, Candy Kugel, George Griffin, Emily Hubley, Debra Solomon, Signe Baumane, Jennifer Oxley, and Xeth Feinberg!

(note, many of these films are NOT for the kiddies)
