Dennis Tupicoff is one of the most accomplished Australian independent animators working today. His unique style of hand-drawn animation mixed with live-action elements creates a feeling of grace in tackling such subjects as humanity and mortality. While he is known mostly for his works in animated documentary, Tupicoff also creates dramas, comedies, documentary hybrids, and film essays; regardless of his cinematic and editorial approach, his films are always introspective, experiential, and honest. We are pleased to present a selection of works by Tupicoff ranging from early works including Dance of Death and His Mother’s Voice to the recent A Photo of Me and Still Alive.

GLAS Animation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in 2014. Our core mission is to cultivate and promote the art and science of animation. We provide a unique platform for independent animation, champion diverse and underrepresented voices, and emphasize exceptional directors and artists that push visual, conceptual, and narrative boundaries within the cinematic artform. We are a community-driven organization that not only exhibits animated films, but creates a context and language for a shared understanding and appreciation of animation in the United States.
