Calling all animation lovers — the seventh annual Detroit International Festival of Animation is going down this Saturday. The fest will showcase film shorts from 24 local and international animators and filmmakers, and it’s not just for animation nerds. From the quirky, experimental, to the what the hell were they smoking, DIFA has something for almost everyone. We say almost, because the event is not recommended for those under 18 due to mature content and themes.

Over 90 minutes of film shorts will be screened at Detroit’s historic 1920s-era Senate Theatre and 25% of admission sales will be donated to the Voices of Children Foundation for humanitarian aid in Ukraine.

Doors at 7 p.m., show starts at 8 p.m. on Saturday, May 7 at the Senate Theatre; 6424 Michigan Ave, Detroit; difestofanim.com. Tickets are $10.
