Slamdance, the younger and more indie counterpart to Sundance, has announced the animation selections for their 23rd edition, taking place January 20-26, 2017, in Park City, Utah.
Thirteen shorts were selected for the primary animation competition, and three other shorts appear in other sections of the festival. Like last year, the Experimental MFA program at CalArts made a strong showing this year with four films in competition. The programmers also turned their attention to the Far East, selecting four films from Asian countries, as well as multiple films by Asian-American creators.
Here’s a look at all the animated shorts at Slamdance 2017. When available, we have included trailers or the actual film itself:
