Jeanette Bonds – June Foray Award Recipient 2020

Animation filmmaker Jeanette Bonds earned both her BFA and MFA degrees in Experimental Animation from CalArts. She provided the animation for the awardwinning 2010 documentary short Johnny and Lyman: A Life Together and the 2013 short Drawing Dead: the Highs and Lows of Online Poker. As director, producer, writer, and animator Jeanette has made the short films Limitations (2011), Trusts and Estates (2013), Hallgrimur of Jeremy (2014) and Departures (2016), which have played in international animation festivals in England, Korea, Holland and Australia. Above and beyond her own work as a filmmaker, though, Jeanette has made a significant contribution to the American animation industry through her founding and direction of GLAS – Global Animation Syndicate – a non-profit organization which supports the work of independent animators through a film festival comprised of indie and non-corporate film projects and grants. Her dedication to supporting the work of other independent filmmakers has led her to give presentations at a host of schools and festivals across the globe, and to serving on the juries for Animafest Zagreb, Fantoche, and the Dallas International Film Festival.
