Punto y Raya Animation screening at SMFA

The Film-Animation area of the SMFA will be hosting the evening screening of the Punto y Raya Festival, this Tuesday Nov. 30 at 7pm. The evening is also a chance for the local New England Animators, a collective of professional locals to meet local college students that are also interested in animation.

Co-Curator Noël Palazzo will be hosting the event screening, which has been traveling internationally, away from their home in Barcelona, Spain. The Iota Center, a public arts organization dedicated to abstract cinema and visual music, located in Culver City, CA is the other side of the collaboration, and is headed by animation filmmaker/artist, Larry Cuba.

The screening is a collection of the "Best of 2009" abstract animation films.
