About the event

Join us to celebrate International Animation Day this October 29th Sunday at the historic Plaza Theatre. Play a trivia game with us, meet others in the community, and watch a selected screening of animated shorts worldwide. The first 100 people to register will get free popcorn and soda! The theme is "Spirited". Come in your best Halloween costume and you might win our "Most Spirited" prize!



For early arrivals, we will be playing a couple rounds of trivia starting from 1:00 PM until our official start time at 1:30 PM as folks come in to register themselves! On-site registrations are accepted as long as our seating registrations are available online. However, we must let all our preregistration guests in first to ensure they get seating and their free popcorn and soda. Registration check-in starts at 1:00 PM until 2:30 PM.


An introduction of ASIFA-South and the history of International Animation Day by our board of directors, Ashley Kohler, and programming director, Casandra-Brewton Johnson.

SCREENING 1:40 - 3:00 PM

(Film runtime is 50 mins)

Some folks have asked us if kids are welcome. Yes, they are, but be warned that we have one animation that involves zombies and jump scare, "Little Wolf: The Night Trail" so the program is PG 13 recommended. 

Then we close out with the award for the Most Spirited Costume handpicked by our board of directors, Ashley Kohler, executive producer at Awesome Inc!


As a heads up, another event is happening at the same time, so Howell Mill Road and Marietta Street will be closed to cars between Trabert Avenue and Northside Drive, including a stretch of 17th Street. Westside Stride will open these 1.5 miles of roads for the community's enjoyment up until 6:00 PM
