Starting tonight and continuing through Thursday evening, the Hungarian Cultural Center and the European National Cultural Institutes of New York will present three evenings of the latest contemporary animation from Europe. For New Yorkers who are unable to regularly attend international animation festivals, this is your best opportunity to see a top-shelf collection of new European animation, all in one place.
Now in its third year, Animated Spirits was founded by Zita Mara Vadasz, who is the director of the Hungarian Cultural Center in New York. This year’s program is the most expansive yet, featuring 44 animated shorts from 19 European Union countries.
