EIGHT ANIMATED FEATURE FILMS — EIGHT CORNERS OF THE WORLD.
Are you an Orange County student who is currently in (or about to enter) Grades 7th – 12th? If so, we invite you to register for our free Summer, 2021 World of Animation program! This online Film-viewing + Discussion program will take place every Tuesday afternoon at 3pm starting Tuesday, June 15h!
This summer, with generous support from State Street Foundation, we are inviting 100 students to join us for our inaugural World of Animation program, conceived to provide younger audiences with an opportunity to experience, free of charge, eight acclaimed feature-length animated films from eight different countries. Screenings will be held online, and each film will be followed by a presentation and conversation with special guests in the fields of cinema, animation, and education. The films presented will represent works from Brazil, Belgium, France, Ireland, Japan, South Korea, Spain, and the US. Our objectives are to encourage younger audiences to seek out and embrace international, independent, non-mainstream cinema; to apply critical, analytical, and comparative thinking to their filmgoing experience; and to become accustomed to experience watching feature films in foreign languages with subtitles. Not to mention, to share some great works of art with future leaders in our community!
