Conscious Cartoons International Animation Festival is at the Vashon Theatre from September 14-16. Conscious Cartoons will feature three days of animated shorts. The show includes something for everyone, from kids to adults.

Conscious Cartoons is founded by animator Bill Jarcho. According to Jarcho, “Conscious Cartoons was born as an urgent call-to-action to help counter the racism, xenophobia, and moral decay evident in our society today.

The show helps promote greater awareness of social issues and will also award independent animators cash prizes of over $20,000 total.
