THE MAGIC FLOOOT 3: FESTIVAL OF HAND DRAWN ANIMATION

Brooklyn, NY- December 13, 2019 8:00-10:00PM- TOMATO MOUSE will present The Magic Floot, a Festival of Hand Drawn Animation by 19 animators from around the globe.  The festival will take place at Tomato Mouse, 4 blocks from the Rockaway Avenue stop of the C train.  Admission is a mere $5.  Drinks will be served.  The festival gratefully acknowledges the support of Brooklyn Arts Council.

Curated by Rebecca Bird and Matthew Thurber, the Magic Flooot series exists to promote, prioritize and propagandize the hand drawn in animation, and sprouts a new vowel each time it occurs. We push sweated-over artist-made films to the front and encourage them to take a bow. All of the works screened wear their handmade personality proudly, in a dazzling ensemble of idiosyncratic and experimental work. As they strut the runway the audience murmurs “I cannot believe they made that by hand!” This is the best of animated couture folks- finger snap!
