GI JOE STOP-MOTION FILM FESTIVAL
Forget the blockbuster live-action G.I. Joe movie coming out this summer and stick with something more true to the source material — something like Gio Toninelo’s G.I. Joe Fest, a celebration of stop-motion animated films created with real G.I. Joe action figures. The festival is a showcase of both the toys and the awesome creativity that springs from the mind of people who refuse to give up their cherished childhood memories. The program also includes a preview of an upcoming feature-length animated film by Austin animators Paul Hanley and Kieran Healy. For complete film info, see: www.92YTribeca.org/film
