LA EVENT: “An Afternoon With Henry Selick” Encore Added

In October, The LA-based GLAS Animation Festival is featuring the work of an animator and director whose films have delighted and inspired a new generation of cinematic creators: Henry Selick. The filmmaker will appear for an intimate encore conversation on Sunday October 2nd at the Downtown Independent, in Downtown L.A., in which he will screen his personal shorts including Slow Bob In the Lower Dimensions, Seepage, Phases, and some surprises. A Q&A with Selick led by GLAS co-founder Einar Baldvin will follow the screening.


As director of the films Coraline and The Nightmare Before Christmas, Selick has made some of the most internationally recognized animated films of all time. They were not only pivotal for the current resurgence of stop-motion, but helped transform the perception of what animation could be and what it could accomplish. His work showed general audiences that animation was not a form to be confined, but rather continuously explored in both its narrative and physical forms.

After the screening there will be a reception hosted by CalArts Office of Alumni & Parent Engagement.
