Animation Block Party returns this week to Brooklyn. The long-running East Coast animation festival, now in its fifteenth year, takes place from Thursday, July 26th, through Sunday, July 29th.
The core of the event is seven programs of recent animated short films, broken down into themes and categories like female animators, animation for kids, experimental films/graphic design/music videos, and multiple programs of international shorts. A synopsis of each film screening can be found here.
Additionally, the festival offers retrospective screenings of three animated features: Mad Monster Party (1967), Akira (1988), and Pokémon Heroes (2002), in addition to the the New York premiere of the French/Japanese co-pro Mutafukaz, which appears to be renamed MFKZ (pictured above).
