There are not too many must-attend animation events for animation history buffs in New York, but tonight promises to be one of them. ASIFA-East and the School of Visual Arts will present a retrospective celebration of Perpetual Motion Pictures, one of the major NY commercial animation studios of the 1970s. The event is bittersweet because both of the studio’s founders—Buzz Potamkin and Hal Silvermintz—passed away in the past year.
The event begins at 7PM at the SVA theater (333 West 23rd Street, between 8th and 9th Ave in Manhattan). Admission is FREE!
