• No Calgary dates announced yet for GKIDS' North American premiere of Japanese film Pompo the Cinephile, but the film itself looks like a blast

• Netflix continues to expand its animated offerings with the announcement of a feature film from Jorge Gutierrez, whose Maya and the Three is one of the most stylish offerings on the streaming platform

• It'd be a bit much for us to plug the Animation Obsessive newsletter every week, but if they keep putting out thoughtful pieces like this balanced look at Darren Aronofsky's homage/ripping off of Satoshi Kon, we'll just have to keep sharing them

Mitchells Vs the Machines animator Michael Rianda shared some lessons he learned from working with Chris Miller and Phil Lord in a pretty fantastic Twitter thread

• And lastly, if you haven't been following The Animation Guild's rally for a stronger contract, Cartoon Brew has you covered

The GLAS animation festival announced its initial lineup last week, and this week they've shared the (stylish as always) signal film from director David Delafuente
