The National Film Board celebrates International Animation Day (October 28th) with Get Animated!, a weeklong series of free screenings and animation workshops across Canada. From October 23-31, check out events happening near you. In Toronto, events will take place at the NFB Mediatheque (150 John Street).
In the Animation Feast programme, I loved Land of the Heads, which I saw last month at the Montreal World Film Festival, and Cordell Barker’s prize-winning Runaway. And in the International Showcase, Skhizein (review) is a can’t-miss. It’s also available in the current issue of Wholphin (#9).
I recently received a copy of the gorgeous NFB animation compilation Animation Express on Blu-ray, which contains many of the films being featured. Watch for a review soon!
