CALLING ALL LATINO ANIMATORS! ANIMATION FESTIVAL!

Posted by Comick - June 27th, 2018


The Latino Comics Expo (LCX) in conjunction with The Alamo Draft House Cinema Theater are running a fundraiser Animation Festival in San Francisco on September 5th, 2018. And we are now taking submissions for the show!

 

SOME INFO ABOUT LCX:

The Latino Comics Expo (LCX) is a Latino-centered comic convention that occurs yearly in Long Beach, CA at the MOLAA (Museum of Latin American Art). They feature and promote comics and art, music, and culture by Latino artists from all over the US and internationally too.

This year they are doing a fundraiser for the Expo by running an Animation Festival to showcase local and international Latin animators. Proceeds to the event go directly to help keep the Expo alive and running, and in exchange animators who may not have had the opportunities to screen or show their shorts in a theater get the spotlight and a live audience. We also do a raffle prize of artwork and question and answer features with artists after the screening.

So starting today, LCX is taking submissions for it 2nd Animation Festival! There is NO FEE to submit and all entries will be notified a week after the cutoff date July 31st if their film was picked for the screening. You dont need to be present to the show to have your work shown, (but if you do, we do a live mic intro with the creator before your piece screens). 

----------------------------------------------------------

RULES:

-All entries must be original works. No parodies or fan animations will be allowed.

-You must be 18yrs or older to submit.

-You must have the rights or legal permission to use the audio/music in your films.

-We are looking for independent shorts in English or Spanish. If your animation is in Spanish, please include English subs directly burned into your piece. (No secondary subtitle files to attach).

- Films made by Latin animators or of Latin decent are highly encouraged to enter. We will also accept works that showcase Latin iconography, culture, or characters even if you may not be Latino.

-If your work is selected, please be able to provide a high-res copy of your animation in H.264 video codec and saved as a .mp4 video file.

-Minimum runtime length: 1 min, Maximum length: 10 mins

----------------------------------------------------------------------

I've got some friends who'd love this, I'll send them in the right direction. :)

Awesome! :D Yes, please share with anyone you think may be interested!

Being brazilian I'm genuinely curious if I can submit something?
Am I considered "latino" over there?
boy I hope so. Anyways wishing everyone involved a great festival!

YES! Brazilian is totally cool! Latino means from Latin America so, basically any place below the USA counts (That means Brazil, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, El Salvador etc etc) and including the Caribbean islands like Puerto Rico, Cuba, Dominican Republic etc etc. And you don't need to live there, you can be of Brazilian decent and live in France and you are still considered Latino. All we ask in this case is that if your animation is in Portuguese, please have English subs on it. :D

Oh-oh-oh thats great! I think it will be awesome.

Yeah! I think its gonna be a great turnout!!
