Ron Diamond speaking at the 2014 San Diego Comic Con International, for "Animation Show of Shows", at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, California.

The Animation Show of Shows is a traveling selection of the year's best animated short films, curated and presented by Acme Filmworks founder, Ron Diamond. It began in 1998 with the aim of showing the most original, funny, intelligent short animated films from all over the world and presenting them at the major animation studios in order to inspire their animators and directors.[1] Since 2007, some of the films are being published on DVDs.[2]
