The oldest film festival in the United States has a new name—and it starts tomorrow.
The 66th annual Columbus International Film & Animation Festival, presented by Columbus College of Art & Design, runs Thursday, March 22, through Saturday, March 24, at CCAD and the Drexel Theatre.
Previously called the Columbus International Film + Video Festival, the new name reflects all the cool new animation programming featured at this year’s festival
On Thursday, film fans will find more experimental animation, a new motion graphics section, and animation geared toward adults in a specially curated edition of the indie animation showcase Malt Adult.
Also, be sure to catch Constant Space, a 73-minute stop-motion space opera that a filmmaker shot on 8mm film in his basement over the course of six years. (You read that right.)
On Friday, stay up late for Not-Quite-Midnight Shorts, featuring plenty of horror flicks and dark humor.
And on Saturday, drop by Ohio Documentary Shorts to catch Breaking the Grade, a documentary that follows a group of students in Columbus who are given a second chance, including with Hot Chicken Takeover (Hot chicken not included.)
