SODAK ANIMATION FESTIVAL

 

SODAK
ANIMATION FESTIVAL
Brookings, South Dakota – USA
October 17 to 20, 2012

The 4th Annual SODAK ANIMATION FESTIVAL (SDAF) stands as one of the few animation-only film festivals in the United States and draws enthusiastic audiences, innovative selections, and special guest speakers who themselves are experts in the field. Held in the heart of Brookings, South Dakota, SDAF places special emphasis on exposing fresh talent to the varied styles of animated storytelling, celebrating student work, and promoting animation education.

Winners of the SDAF will go home with “The Golden Cowbell,” a distinctive artisan-crafted award that’s sure to stand out on any trophy case. This year’s winners will also receive software packages from such vendors as Red Giant Software. The Festival offers a top-notch program; attendees can network at Drinking & Drawing, discover Wacom products at workshops, and enjoy thrilling displays of animated ingenuity on screen. Daktronics, the world’s leader in large-scale LED displays and co-sponsor of SDAF, also provides tours of its state-of-the-art facility during the festival.

Travel grants and assistance are available to guests on a limited basis. Last year, 90% of the Festival’s submission fees were re-directed to animators whose works were selected for screening.

UPCOMING DEADLINE
July 15, 2012 – Regular Deadline

MORE ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
Past SDAF speakers and guests have included Annie Award-nominee David Chai (ENRIQUE WRECKS THE WORLD), Academy Award-nominee Bill Plympton (YOUR FACE), and Reid Thompson, senior designer at Troika Design. This year’s festival will feature celebrated animator J.J. Sedelmaier (“Beavis & Butthead”) and stop-motion animator Kirsten Lepore – winner of the first Student Annie Award, LACMA’s Young Director Award, and the Special Jury Award at SXSW.

EUGENE INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL

The 7th Annual EUGENE INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL (EIFF), is presenting a diverse line-up of films from around the world and an informative program of interactive workshops, panel discussions, and networking events in Eugene, Oregon. EIFF receives entries from more than 30 countries annually, and accepts features, shorts, and short shorts in a variety of categories including narrative, documentary, science fiction, animation, young audience, art/experimental, comedy, television pilots, and more.

The Festival is renowned for its Screenwriter and Filmmaker Retreat, which offers attending artists the chance to meet, learn from, and collaborate with other attending writers, filmmakers, and special guests. This year’s industry participants are writer/producer Tom Sawyer (“Murder She Wrote”), Beverly Hills literary agent Ken Sherman, film and video distributor Mike Katchman, and acclaimed feature film concept artist Terryl Whitlatch. This year’s retreat will include a Concept Arts Workshop, where Whitlatch will discuss her work creating STAR WARS creatures and help those attending hone the art of visual storytelling and character development by guiding attendees through a concept world, “The Tales of Amalthea,” with its own ecology, culture, and inhabitants.

Over a half-dozen films have been acquired for distribution at EIFF over the years, and many more EIFF filmmakers have had their careers boosted by the many agents and other industry attendees that have discovered their work at the festival. Roger Corman raves that EIFF is “already one of America’s top film fests…and getting better every year.”
