    Thanks for putting the festival up, although there are a couple more events not listed …

    Saturday 6 to 8: Meet the Professionals mixer, where audience members can meet professionals in animation, many of the presenters, plus others like Floyd Norman and Jim Keeshen.

    Saturday 8 to midnight: Animation Marathon, where all the nominated shorts are screened, and the audience can vote on the Audience Favorite Award.

    Sunday 5 to 6: Awards Presentations

    Plus, Fandango has been giving people errors, so the best thing to do is just come to the Egyptian box office and hour and a half before show time.

    I saw Eric Goldberg’s presentation and he did a great job.

    Would have loved to attend Goldberg’s presentation-if I had known about it earlier. But, thanks for the heads up anyway.

    Loved having my film screened there and great presentations!
