Funding - Ron Diamond and Animation Show of Shows Inc, Kickstarting the 18th International Screening

The Animation Show of Shows Inc., which is a non-profit organization founded by producer Ron Diamond to give independent animated works an opportunity to be shown in theatrical setting and become accessible to the general public, has started its second Kickstarter campaign to fund the 2016 international screening tour.

In 2015, the 17th Animation Show of Shows had 435 showings in 47 public theatres in 4 countries, surprising and inspiring the audience with its selection of quirky international animated shorts, and providing an opportunity to learn more about the independent animators behind these animated works through short documentaries where the filmmakers would share their process, inspiration and hardship stories.

With only 10 days left to go for the Kickstarter campaign, I hope that Ron Diamond and his team will be able to reach their grand total of $120 000.
