Aggregate Animated Shorts

Second Annual Film Festival

6 July – 4 August 2018

In our ongoing effort to present unique and challenging art experiences to the public, Aggregate Space Gallery is proud to launch this celebration of non-commercial and experimental animation. Animation, as subset within video art, is unique in its versatility as a communicative form and its ability to place viewers inside adjacent realities. It is a medium without rules or restrictions, and its content can address ideas as simple or as complex as the animator intends.


The exhibition will culminate in an award ceremony hosted by artist, animator, and Congratulations Pine Tree co-host, Kate Rhoades. We will be screening the top two films from each category, as well as a viewer’s choice award from each category. Viewer’s Choice categories will be rated by visitors to the gallery, so come by and judge these films by July 28th! The event will also include a film by each of our exhibition jurors: Meghana Bisineer, Tan Wei Keong, Clement Hil Goldberg, and Jeremy Rourke.


Featuring shorts by: Noah Aust, Mike Cantor, Carla Ciuffo, Sandro Del Rosario, Lydia Greer, Paula Moxham Imirzian, Michael Siporin Levine, Ryan Lewis, Wrik Mead, Sarah Paulsen,  Paige Stewart, Jordan Wason, and Jeffrey Yip.
