On April 8th and 9th 2016 at Detroit’s Tangent Gallery/Hastings Ballroom, the first annual Detroit International Festival of Animation (DIFA) will celebrate and showcase a wild diversity of animations from animators and filmmakers local and international. DIFA will feature just over 90 minutes of animated shorts ranging from experimental to quirky as well as more sophisticated mini features.
Also within the same venue, you will find a gallery of animation and comic inspired art and an expo of local artists, animators, zine publishers and comic creators. There will also be a full bar for pop, beer and mixed drinks purchases and free popcorn all night.
Admission is $10 ($5 matinee Sat 5pm). Cosplay is welcomed and encouraged. This event is 18+ due to some mature film and art content.
