Closing Night Celebration at 6:45pm

This special closing-night program will celebrate some of the best animated shorts from the past year.

On January 29, the César Awards, France’s equivalent to the Oscars, announced its 2020 nominees. Animation First will screen all the finalists in the Best Animated Short category, alongside other notable films. This is a rare opportunity for US audiences to see these acclaimed works on the big screen.

Join us at 6:45pm, before the screening, for our Closing Night celebration!
