Animated Events: Women in Animation panel at the Fusion Film Festival

Sorry about the late notice, but I was just informed by NY animator Candy Kugel that on Friday, March 7th at New York University, the Fusion Film Festival will be hosting a panel discussion on Women in Animation.

What: Women in Animation panel discussion and screening
When: Friday, March 7th at 7 p.m.
Where: NYU Tisch, Theater 006
             New York University

Speakers in attendance will be:

  • DEBRA SOLOMON (animator and producer, creator of The Lizzie McGuire Movie)
  • CANDY KUGEL (Emmy Award winning designer, director, and principal producer of TV specials and commercials at Buzzco Associates)
  • DENISE ROTTINA (production manager, Blue Sky Studios)
  • JENNIFER OXLEY (co-creator of PBS’s Peg + Cat, former creative director of Nick Jr.’s The Wonder Pets, and an NYU Animation alum)1
The event is free and open to the public, however, seating is limited and provided on a first-come, first-seated basis. So you're going to attend this panel discussion--and I hope you do--be sure to arrive early in order to get a seat.

Additional information and directions can be found on their website at: www.fusionfilmfestival.com/events/ and www.fusionfilmfestival.com/contact/.

Unfortunately, I will be unable to attend as I'm in Michigan, so if any of you attend, please feel free to send an e-mail and let everyone know how the event was.
