The Big Screen Project is happy to celebrate a month-long celebration of original animation from celebrated names in the New York animation field such as John Dilworth, Bill Plympton, Jeff Scher, Dan Meth and Elliot Cowan, showcases from Too Art 4 TV and Animation Block Party, and a special Girl’s Night Out celebrating contributions from women in animation (Emily Hubley, Nina Paley, and Debra Solomon). In addition to the premiers, the Big Screen Project will also be showing blocks of animation that are already in our general programming.
