Each year, the GLAS Animation Festival showcases a thrillingly expansive range of films from around the globe. Founded in 2016 by animators Jeanette Bonds and Einar Baldvin, it has become a singular platform for art and industry alike, highlighting experimental and visionary threads across the spectrum. Bonds presents a selection of films from the festival’s 2019 edition, including Grand Prix winner ACID RAIN (2019), a mind-bending tale of street life and love by Polish animator Tomek Popakul, as well as festival favorite AGUA VIVA (2018), an exquisite portrait of a Chinese immigrant manicurist by Alexa Lim Haas. Also on the program are Marta Pajek’s IMPOSSIBLE FIGURES AND OTHER STORIES III (2018), Lénaïg Le Moigne’s CLEMENCE’S AFTERNOON (2017), Alan Biet’s GRANDS CANONS (2018), and Boris Labbe’s LA CHUTE (2018).
