“A-wop-bop-a-loo-mop-a-lop-bam-boom!”  What better way to honor “The Innovator, the Originator, and the Architect of Rock ‘n’ Roll” (as he often referred to himself) than to name one of the most diverse, colorful, exciting, and popular programs in the festival after his signature hit! Campfire tales, celestial phenomena, maternal dreams, Stevie, Noh masks, AI, Victorian shadows, broken hearts, boundary crossing, home enigmas, and freaky dog business are at the heart of this wide-ranging celebration of the best and brightest new animated works to cross our paths this year.
