My friend, former roomie, fellow artist and all-around geezer, Anthony Rhoads, has a 9-minute short “Without Your Permission” in the New Filmmaker’s screening this upcoming Wednesday, 26 November at Anthology Film Archives in NYC. His work will be in the animation festival and short film program, which consists of nearly all-new directors (all but one actually) who have never screened at AFA before (that’s 17 new directors!). So if you happen to be in town next week, aren’t traveling out (or as New Filmmakers put it Hate the Holidays) and are looking to see some film by unlikely directors, head down to AFA. It’s easy to remember their location: 32 2nd Avenue @ 2nd Street.

It’s between $5-$8 for admission, and starts promptly at 6pm.

And as someone who’s gotten a sneak preview of the piece Anthony will be screening, I can say that his work alone is worth the cost of admission. You’ll be pleasantly surprised, and find yourself shouting ‘replay!’
