For the sixth year in a row, the San Francisco International Animation Festival will present a program of some of the best animated full-length features and shorts released in the past year.

Playing at the New People Cinema at 1746 Post Street, the festival is presented by the San Francisco Film Society and features three nights of impeccably curated material from around the world.

"Each year we strive to bring the best animated films--features, shorts, fiction, nonfiction--produced in the world during the past year," said programmer Sean Uyehara. "And, the tone of the SFIAF changes for that reason, according to what's out there. This year’s incarnation is exceptionally dark and introspective…In any case, if SFIAF is a sign of the times, the times are indeed looking inward and disturbing."
