I first went to the Spike & Mike Sick & Twisted Festival of Animation in 1999. I was a Senior in High School and I thought I was SO cool for sneaking out to Hollywood to see this controversial film festival! Fast forward 13 years and this festival is STILL happening and is just as twisted as it ever was. They just completed their run at the Long Beach Art Theatre, but if you are an aspiring animator…you are in luck! They are currently accepting submissions for their New Generation Film Festival. Just read the flyer below or email Spike@SpikeandMike.com for more information!
