Included in the program is Disney's FEAST (with the animated feature Big Hero Six, November 2014) and Pixar's LAVA (with Pete Docter's animated feature Inside Out, June 2015). Also featured is 365 the film by Greg and Myles McLeod, composed of 365 one-second films chronicling a year of day by day filmmaking, veteran Animation Show of Shows featured director Torill Kove (Academy Award® winner for The Danish Poet and Oscar® nominated for My Grandmother Ironed the King's Shirts) who will personally share her new National Film Board of Canada short ME AND MY MOULTON at select Bay Area screenings.
