Showcasing wildly diverse work by both local and international filmmakers and animators, the Detroit International Festival of Animation will feature 95 minutes of animated shorts — some silly and some sophisticated. The festival will also feature an animation expo where patrons can shop for animation and comic inspired art by local artists, animators, zine publishers, and comic creators. According to festival organizers, cosplay is welcomed and encouraged at this event. There will be a full bar, snacks, popcorn, and some hot foods available during the festival as well. 18 and older only.
