In celebration of International Animation Day

A few years ago the international film association ASIFA declared October 28th as the International Animation Day. This means that on that day every year, people around the world are encouraged to celebrate the art of animation by arranging screenings or other activities.

This year the International Animation Day is honoured in Sweden by a series of cinema screenings of a special animation programme assembled by Eksjö Animation Festival and the Forum for International Animation. We are happy to announce that The Weapon has been selected as one of the five films screened in this programme! Other films being shown are:

Dreams from the Woods (orig. Drömmar från skogen) by Johannes Nyholm
Slaves (orig. Slavar) by David Aronowitsch and Hanna Heilborn
Checkoo by Erik Rosenlund
The Gang of Lidingö (orig. Lidingöligan) by Maja Lindström

Due to local issues, not all screenings will actually be on the 28th of October. These are the places and dates:

Fellingsbro – Fellingsbro folkhögskola, October 23
Kramfors – Ådalsskolan, October 28
Härnösand – Härnösands konsthall, October 28
