Join Women in Animation and #Animation Breakdown Celebrating the Work of Female Animation Directors

On Sunday, March 9, please join Women in Animation and Animation Breakdown for a very special evening celebrating the work of female animation directors.

First up, an amazing WIA-assembled panel with esteemed directors, and then it’s time for an Animation Breakdown-curated selection of shorts past and present!

Prestigious panelists include Lauren Faust (My Little Pony, The Powerpuff Girls, Wander Over Yonder), Emily Hubley (The Toe Tactic, Hedwig & The Angry Inch, Pigeon Within), Yvette Kaplan (Beavis & Butthead, King of the Hill, Zack & Quack), Lauren Montgomery (Wonder Woman, Green Lantern: First Flight), Rebecca Sugar (Steven Universe, Adventure Time) and Lauren MacMullan (the Oscar-nominated Get A Horse!, The Simpsons). Moderated by director/actor Conrad Vernon (Shrek 2, Monsters vs. Aliens), the discussion covers animation direction across mediums: TV, features, shorts, traditional and digital, inside and out of the studio system.

Films to be screened:
– Pencil Booklings (1978): Kathy Rose’s seminal scribbles brought to life
