Happy Valley Animation Festival To Take Place Starting April 29
The recently founded Animation Club at Penn State is hosting its first-ever showcase and competition festival later this month.
The Happy Valley Animation Festival will take place Thursday, April 29, and Friday, April 30 at The Barbara O. and James R. Korner Tower Terrace on campus. Submitted work will be projected onto a large, inflatable screen and streamed online.
The first day of the festival will be a non-competitive showcase of all submitted work. The second day will be a competition. A panel of judges made up of Penn State professors and alumni will assess the submitted work and give out awards.
There are four different categories of works people can submit: Animated Films, Animated Motion Graphics & Designs, Experimental Animated Works, and the Silly Walk Animated Cycles. Currently, the festival has submissions from 60 different countries, and anyone of any skill level can participate.
There is no entry fee to enter the festival. To submit work and learn more about the awards up for grabs, visit the festival’s FilmFreeway website. The submission deadline is Wednesday, April 21.
