Gina Kamentsky’s animation work has screened at numerous festivals including Annecy, Ottawa International Animation Festival, and the Ann Arbor Film Festival. Additionally, she is the co-director of the short film Traffic Stop for POV, which was nominated for an Emmy.

Kamentsky’s first animated film was produced when she was 12 using a Bell and Howell 8mm camera and drawing on recycled computer paper. Since then she has been passionate about creating animation and has progressed through a variety of narrative and experimental forms. In her most recent work she draws and paints images directly on film stock, a technique known as direct animation.
