For the month of November, the Museum of Contemporary Art and Design (MCAD) is holding the “MCAD Film Screenings” at De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde, School of Design and Arts. They’re screening a selection of animated films that we’d describe as “trippy” or for lack of better word “artsy” af, and all for free. Showing four animated films in total, they’ll be screening each movie two times per day, on given days, with the first screening at 12pm and the second screening at 3pm. And as mentioned, entrance is free for all. Just make sure to bring an ID to drop off at the lobby if you’re not a CSB student.
