UW CSE animation “Kings” selected for Seattle International Film Festival

“Kings,” UW CSE’s 2008 Animation Capstone film, as been selected from among more than 3,000 entrants to be screened at this year’s Seattle International Film Festival.  Kings will be screened as an “official selection” during SIFF’s Short Film Weekend (May 21-23) at the new state-of-the-art SIFF Cinema where all formats are brilliantly projected.

SIFF is the largest and most well-attended film festival in the United States, with 150,000 attendees expected in 2010.  With extensive local, national and international media coverage, the Festival has emerged as one of the country’s most accessible and highly publicized film events.

UW CSE’s Animation Capstone courses are taught by Barbara Mones and a host of collaborators to UW undergraduates from Computer Science & Engineering, Art, and Music.  There is a long tradition of these wonderful student-created animated shorts competing well against professional submissions at national and international animation festivals.

Congratulations to Barbara and the entire Kings crew!
