Since 2014, the GLAS team has been working to create an inclusive venue for the celebration and creation of independent animation here in the United States. We couldn’t be more proud to bring artists together as a community, exhibit films in a theatrical context, and introduce animation as a serious artistic medium. People and organizations have supported us in innumerable ways, and because of that, we’ve been able to steadily and organically scale our operation to include more events, visiting artists from all over the world, and the creation of our inaugural grant program. And we have no intention of slowing down. By getting involved, you are directly helping to fulfill our mission to cultivate and promote the art of animation in the United States, and to broaden the culture of animation as an art form.
