ICA Family Day Animation Film Festival – This summer the ICA invites you to explore the magical world of animation and learn more about the work that goes into each frame. The ICA Family Day Animation Film Festival is a non-competitive celebration of animated film, geared towards introducing children and families to different methods of storytelling outside of conventional animation.

On the 3rd Sunday of June through August of 2020, the museum will digitally showcase a variety of animated films that use different animation techniques on our website. Supplemental “how to” videos will be included as a means of giving kids behind-the-scenes looks into the craft, and perhaps create a foundation for them to put their own creativity into practice. Reservations are required and limited.
