22nd Annual Animation of Shows

Date and Time

Friday, October 28, 2022 - 10:00am to 12:00pm


After a two-year pandemic hiatus, the Animation Show of Shows returns to theaters and campuses across North America this fall. This 90-minute, 22nd edition comprises 10 films—nine recent, along with one restored classic—which deal with both the anxieties and hopes of a world faced with a seemingly endless series of existential crises. All are inventive, and their tone ranges from the whimsical to the profound; their techniques, from stop-motion to hand-drawn to computer-aided.

The nine new films come from Europe, Asia, and North America. The program culminates with a striking restored 4K digital remaster by the Academy Film Archive of Frederic Back's classic 1987 Oscar-winner, The Man Who Planted Trees.
