A little more about each event:
Gravity Was Everywhere Back Then, a Brent Green Animated Feature
Based on a true story and expressed through hand-drawn imagery, live action, live music, and stop-motion animation, Gravity Was Everywhere Back Then tells the tale of a man named Leonard who fought against reason and nature to create a miracle that would save his wife from a terminal illness. The film often serves as a backdrop to live music performed by the director and his band, with sequences contributed by award-winning American filmmaker Jem Cohen. Romantic, darkly humorous, and philosophically challenging, Gravity Was Everywhere Back Then contemplates everything from the power of human will to the existence of God.

Spike & Mike’s Sick and Twisted Festival of Animation
We’re very excited to bring Spike & Mike’s to Tallahassee. For over 30 years, Spike & Mike have curated the best of the best in edgy pop culture animation. Ever heard of a little show called South Park? Beavis and Butthead? Trey Parker, Matt Stone, and Mike Judge have all been featured in past Spike & Mike collections-- not to mention John Lasseter, Chief Creative Officer of Pixar. The traveling festival began as “filler” at rock concerts and has grown into its own arena-sized event, becoming the central clearing-house for visionary filmmakers and radical artists in this medium. This event is 18+, so don’t bring the kids to this one!
