For the first time since its start in 1998, the Animation Show of Shows is screening outside the doors of major animation studios and in movie theaters for general audiences. The 17th annual Animation Show of Shows features 11 animated short films from around the world.

Curated by animation producer and founder of Acme Filmworks, Ron Diamond, the feature-length program presents animated works previously only available to Academy members, festivalgoers and the likes of Pixar and DreamWorks.

“We’ve been following Ron Diamond’s programs for years. Our cinemas have even hosted his free screenings for students in the past, and have been hoping to be able to bring them to a larger audience,” said Clinton McClung, director of cinema programming at the Seattle International Film Festival.

For the past nearly two decades, Diamond has been traveling to festivals across North America and Europe and presenting his top picks to industry professionals. From these, nine have won the Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film.

This year’s selection has already garnered distinguished awards, with Don Hertzfeldt’s “World of Tomorrow” winning grand jury prizes at the Sundance Film Festival and SXSW and Konstantin Bronzit’s “We Can’t Live Without the Cosmos” receiving 40 festival awards worldwide.
