Anne Richardson grew up in Portland, Oregon. She went to school on the East Coast, and remained there, homesick but happy, for almost 30 years.

Now returned to Portland, she directs the annual Oregon Film History Conference, presented by Oregon Cartoon Institute.

Founded in 2007 by Anne Richardson and Dennis Nyback, Oregon Cartoon Institute uses new media, archival film, research, networking, and cross disciplinary discussion to explore Oregon film, animation, and print cartooning history.  It has no brick and mortar presence, and always works in partnership with organizations which do.

Oregon Cartoon Institute is a 501c3 non profit organization. Here’s more information.
