A Coffeeshop for Animators

Flip Cafe

Finally, somebody has combined two of my passions: coffee and cartoons. Flip Cafe is a coffeeshop in Bangkok that, according to their site, “is a place for animation and film lovers to get together, to get inspired, and to explore the world of moving images.” Their space looks comfy and inviting, and besides serving coffee, Flip Cafe hosts free animation screenings every Wednesday as well as animation workshops for kids. Best of all, their screenings aren’t randomly selected cartoons but nicely curated film programs. For example, their show tomorrow evening includes stop motion works by Ladislaw Starewicz, Barry Purves and Ray Harryhausen. Upcoming screenings include a program on pixilation and a screening of THE CORPSE BRIDE. I have no idea if the place is as cool as the website makes it look, but I’d definitely be checking it out if I were in Thailand.
