GLAS Animation Festival 2017 Announces Special Guests

The second edition of the GLAS Animation Festival is on its way, taking place March 2nd-5th, 2017 in the city of Berkeley, California, just a quick ride away from San Francisco. Guests this year include Brad Bird (The Incredibles, The Iron Giant), Massaski Yusa (Mind Game), George Schwizgebel (Jeu), Mathieu Labaye (The Labyrinth), Amy Lockhart (Walk For Walk), Lei Lei (Recycled), Experimental animator Peter Burr, Ana Ramirez (So Long, Yupi), Madeline Sharafian (Acorn) and Ottawa Animation Fest topper, Chris Robinson. Even more guests will be announced early in the new year.


GLAS introduces new ideas and expands the scope of animation by bringing new voices, new talents, new themes, and a new generation of independent filmmakers and curators to the United States. We highlight fresh voices in independent animation while curating special programs of the most significant periods of animation history that serve as an inspiration for contemporary animators.

Visit the GLAS website for more information about the festival, lodging, registration, volunteer information, and sponsorship.
