Animation Nights at the NFB
Canadian animation is renowned across the world, and the National Film Board is hosting two animation nights to prove it.
I'm not exaggerating: I've met filmmakers from around the world who have been in awe of the amazing quality of animated shorts that come from our country, and the amount of Academy Award nominations for Canadian animated shorts in the past decade speaks volumes about the recognition they are receiving outside the country.
Sadly, not many people inside Canada have a chance to see the gems that are being produced local filmmakers. The NFB Mediatheque is solving that problem by hosting animation nights tonight and on Thursday to showcase award-winning Canadian animation from the past few years.
If you've ever wondered what all the buzz is about when it comes to Canadian animation, these two nights are definitely worth checking out.
