What is Womanimation? As the name implies, it's a festival showcasing acclaimed animated films created by women from around the world.
From satire to drama, from the everyday to the surreal - in styles from traditional 2-d to stop-motion to computer animation - the festival features something for every taste.
The sixth edition of Womanimation! took place at 95 Empire in Providence, Rhode Island, on Saturday, June 28th.
DJ Madame B spun music from women around the world between screenings, and audience members voted for their favorite films in the festival.
This year’s program was quite diverse in its themes, animated styles, and geography, with eleven films from ten countries. Ten of the films were US premieres.

We have a winner!
Mythopolis from Alexandra Hetmerová of the Czech Republic was selected as the audience favorite, narrowly beating honorable mentions Oh My Dog! from Chloé Alliez (France) and Symphony no. 42 from Réka Bucsi (Hungary).
Thanks to all who came out and enjoyed this unique program, and thanks to the staff at AS220 for making things run smoothly, and of course, thanks to all our Womanimators for sharing their talents with us!
