The Eyeworks Festival of Experimental Animation and Animation Breakdown Festival are both happening this weekend.
Next week, the Cinefamily in Los Angeles will present its Animation Breakdown festival comprised of nineteen events over six days.
The West Coast might have its Comic-Con this week, but the East Coast will be enjoying animated films at the 11th annual Animation Block Party, which starts tomorrow and continues through Sunday.
The Los Angeles indie animation event of the season takes place tomorrow, Saturday March 8th, at The Cinefamily.
