In 2003-04, Casey Safron was hosting animation screenings in downtown Manhattan. These pre-YouTube era events quickly grew in popularity. The first official Animation Block Party took place on Sept. 9, 2004. ABP partnered with Rooftop Films in 2006 and evolved into a four day festival as attendance grew by thousands each July. Over the past 15 years, ABP has presented holiday events for Valentine’s, Halloween, etc., and hosted showcases in cities ranging from Stockholm to London, New Orleans and Los Angeles.
Fast forward to 2018, Animation Block has teamed up with Brooklyn Cloth to create one-of-a-kind t-shirts for the 15th annual block party. The 15th anniversary t-shirt brings life to ordinary objects with the iPhone clock marking the kick off date of this four day block party! Be sure to get your t-shirt before they run off here:
