Win Tickets

I have a pair tickets to give away to “Mothers of a Medium” which showcases animation from female animators.

Proof that female filmmakers are a creative force to be reckoned with, this year’s collection of international shorts from female creators highlights the diversity of female animators. These brilliant self-contained creative feats beautifully capture all the fun and foibles of human nature.
