difa2_poster_11x17_smOn April 7th and 8th 2017 at Detroit’s Tangent Gallery/Hastings Ballroom, the second 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, as well hot food, snacks and popcorn.

Admission is $10 ($5 matinee Sat 5pm).  Cosplay is welcomed and encouraged.  This event is 18+ due to some mature film and art content.
