The Plaza Cinema & Media Arts Center will present its first-ever “Animation Sensation Film Fest (ASFF)” this September 5th through the 7th. The ASFF is a South Shore Film Festival and C+Ck project, funded in part by Suffolk County. Actress, local resident, and Plaza Cinema supporter Isabella Rossellini will host the festival and present the opening night’s film, A Letter to Momo, at 7:00 pm on September 5th.
The three-day, interactive film festival will explore the medium of animation and cartooning from the inside out and is open to adults and children. It will include workshops on how to create simple stop-motion animation, an animation art gallery (held at Artspace Patchogue), and films ranging from student projects to those by independent industry professionals.
