In anticipation of the upcoming Georgia Animation on Our Mind show on July 10 at the High, we thought you might like to learn more about ASIFA, the International Animated Film Association, which  was founded in 1960 in Annecy, France, home to one of the world’s most prestigious animation festivals. Visit their U.S. chapters at ASIFA HollywoodASIFA East, ASIFA Central, and of course ASIFA Atlanta.

Can’t wait until July 10? Here are three wonderful films:

Robert Breer’s stream of consciousness Swiss Army Knife with Rats and Pigeons

Oscar Fischinger’s  spirited The Mephisto Waltz

and Larry Jordan’s fantastical  Rime of the Ancient Mariner, narrated by Orson Welles

For more great animated films, news and links to animation sites, visit Cartoon Brew.

ASIFA…interesting group. Have any great animators been associated with this group?
