AFI's "10 Greatest Animated Films: The 50 Nominees"
The American Film Institute’s official 50 nominees for the Top 10 Animated Films of All-Time (to be announced June 17, 2008)
"AFI defines “animated” as a genre in which the film’s images are
primarily created by computer or hand and the characters are voiced
"A skillful combination of caricature and artistry, animation amplifies
reality, offering stories that are visually stylized, but emotionally truthful.
Whether it’s a minimalist black squiggle or a full-blown tour-de-force of
color and movement, animation allows imaginary characters and
inanimate objects to spring vividly to life."
