Film screening: 22ND ANNUAL ANIMATION SHOW OF SHOWS (Wednesday, November 16)

For those of you in or near Corvallis, join us for a 7 pm show of the 22nd Annual Animation Show of Shows at the Darkside Cinema, Wednesday, November 16. One night only!

After a two-year Covid hiatus, the ANIMATION SHOW OF SHOWS returns to theaters and campuses across North America this fall.

This 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, with tone ranging from the whimsical to the profound, and techniques from stop-motion to hand-drawn to computer-aided.

10 animated short films, in order of appearance:

  • Beyond Noh — Patrick Smith/Kaori Ishida (U.S./Japan) 
  • Empty Places — Geoffroy de Crecy (France) 
  • Beseder (Good and Better) — Gil Alkabetz (Germany) 
  • Zoizoglyphe — Jeanne Apergis (France) 
  • Rain (Deszcz) — Piotr Milczarek (Poland) 
  • Average Happiness — Maja Gehrig (Switzerland) 
  • Aurora — Jo Meuris (U.S.)
  • Yes-People — Gísli Darri Halldórsson (Iceland) 
  • Ties — Dina Velikovskaya (Germany/Russia) 
  • The Man Who Planted Trees — Frédéric Back (Canada)
