The Festival will show the powerful Israeli film Waltz with Bashir, Bill Plympton's latest Idiots and Angels and seven shorts programs -- always the best way to catch the most styles, genres and topics. The Festival will screen November 13-16 at Landmark's Embarcadero Center Cinema.

Opening the festival on November 13 is Nina Paley's award-winning feature, Sita Sings the Blues, a beautifully animated East-meets-West visual feast that has delighted audiences around the world with its tongue-in-cheek update of the Ramayana.
The rest of the schedule includes a mini-retrospective of master animator Gene Deitch, music videos and a free panel discussion. Many of the programs will have guests, including Nina Paley, Bill Plympton and Gene Deitch.
