This Sunday, May 9, is the 41st annual ASIFA-East Animation Festival, the essential annual event of New York animation’s social calendar. The awards ceremony begins at 6pm at the New School’s Tishman Auditorium (66 W. 12th Street). It’s free, you don’t have to dress up, and there’s food afterward. In other words, it’s about the best animation awards show you’re going to find.

    Here out west, we get the ASIFA-East winner’s reel later in the year, and it’s always a fun show. Would love to see the whole show at some point.
