Submissions Open for Animation Celebration 2013!!!

The 2nd Annual MAPA Animation Celebration


After last year's amazing success, it's time to get toony again!
Do you have an animated short or feature that you would like to see on the LARGEST screen in the state of Kansas (75 x 100 ft.)?  What about screening them along side some of entertainment's hottest animators working right here in the Kansas City metro area?  How about getting feedback right from the artists?  MAPA and CinemaKC are joining forces to make make it all happen again.

The Midwest Association of Professional Animators (MAPA) is proud to once again partner with CinemaKC to present our annual Animation Celebration on Saturday, Sept. 7, 2013.  Special thanks again to the Neal family for allowing our event to be held again at the Boulevard Drive-in, 1051 Merriam Lane, Kansas City, KS 66103.

This rare opportunity will give student, amateur and professional animators a chance to screen, discuss and answer questions about their respective works side-by-side.  Furthermore, the Boulevard's ground camera will give willing artists a chance to make their own silver screen debuts and talk about their works before our live audience.

All submissions should be a .mov or mpeg file, scaled to 1280x720. They must all include a complete credit list. There is no cost for submission. Deadline to submit is August 21, 2013.  Please contact Dylan, Taylor or Doug at

SEE the cutting edge of Animation, VFX and Motion Design from right here in the Midwest!
