“This is the most exciting new festival in the Bay Area, with work that is beautiful and nothing like anything most people have ever seen.”
—Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
BAMPFA hosts two programs from the fourth annual GLAS Animation Festival, which takes place March 21 through 24 in the heart of downtown Berkeley. GLAS exhibits films from local and international artists and filmmakers across the animation spectrum, creating a community and space for industry veterans, historians, animation enthusiasts, and emerging talent from diverse backgrounds to come together, share, learn, and appreciate the animated art form in a critical context. GLAS was created to showcase the most exciting animation being made around the world and expand the scope of how animation is understood as an artistic medium in the United States. GLAS also hosts an international competition, retrospectives, specially curated programs, workshops, panel discussions, performances, and installations.
