I do wish that festival organizers would stop programming on Sundays, but that’s the way of the world most of the time. For those families for whom Sunday is the Sabbath, check out the First Saturdays program at the New Museum. The first Saturday of every month there are artistic workshops and screenings of past years’ films, which look really fun.
The line-up for this year’s festival looks great. It’s mostly animation, though not all; take a look at the complete program, with some teaser clips included. I haven’t seen any of these films, but my top recommendation has to be the new film by my friend Annie Poon, entitled Puppy’s Super Delicious Valentines Day Biscuits.
Here are some images from some of the other films. I’m thrilled by the apparent variety in medium and content. It looks like a wide-ranging bunch, fit for older kids and most of the younger ones as well.
