Among nearly 3000 submitted films, this year, the Globe International Silent Film Festival had the honor of receiving 621 animations. Last year, animations were one of our most popular categories during the days of the festival. We received 313 submissions in the first year. This year this number has nearly doubled, and the animations were completely and utterly mesmerizing.

Ms. Sara Tabibzadeh, member of our selection committee in charge of viewing the animations felt very strongly about the animations. She is among our past winners and even she admitted that this years animations were incredible. From these 621 submissions, Ms. Tabibzadeh has chose 31 entries. These are incredible, incredible films. We the members of the board of directors are always so proud of our animation entries, but this year’s films took our expectations to an entirely new level.

We wish to hear good news about all of these wonderful friends’ films. The screening days are in April, from the 5th to the 9th. Do not miss the chance of viewing these beautiful films.
