Local Event: Cartune Xprez, Friday Feb. 26

This Friday, “Cartune Xprez” is coming to Reno — hosted by GASA and the Holland Project. The CX folks have put out two DVDs featuring a diverse set of contemporary animation — the fact that they’re coming to town with a screening and live show has really made my day.

GASA and Holland Project are happy to present:

Cartune Xprez brings a bundle of carefully selected short films and animated snippets by independent and emerging artists, ranging from hot up-and-comers to established filmmakers who have shown their work at the NYMOMA and Sundance Film Festival.

Portland, OR band Hooliganship will be in tow to provide a live (and lively) performance of their newest cartoon theater, a mash-up of video projections and audio arpeggios fit for art fans and dancing feet.

The program begins at 8 p.m. Entry is $5 for general public, and $3 for students with valid I.D.

Here’s the trailer for CX’s last DVD:
