Denver Nickel & Dime Animation Extravaganza


The Bug Theatre
3654 Navajo Street
Denver, CO 80211

Turning animated classics into live-action films may be the trend du jour in Hollywood, but this new fest proves you shouldn’t count animation out yet. More than 30 animated shorts about topics as varied as space travel and annoying bosses will be screened over the course of the evening, with a cartoon host playing emcee on the big screen between films. The filmmakers on the roster include big-name illustrators and Academy Award nominees such Bill Plympton and Graham Annable—some of whom will even make onscreen appearances as human co-presenters with the animated emcee.
