it looks like we got a shout out from Canadian Animation Resources, how sweet is that?!
They wanted to get the word out on the animate shorts featured in the festival!
Which films you ask?
Well, these ones:
ORIANA directed by Kara Miranda Lawrence
A whimsical 3D animated fairytale adapted from the iconic Portuguese novel “A Fada Oriana” by the late Sophia de Mello Breyner Andresen. A young fairy named Oriana is entrusted to take care of an Azorean forest and all its inhabitants. However, she becomes mesmerized by her reflection and the forest is destroyed due to her neglect. Will Oriana be able to redeem herself and save the forest in time?
Screening on: Saturday, March 5th in the Reel Women Showcase from 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm.
CRY ROCK directed by Banchi Hanuse
The wild beauty of the Bella Coola Valley blends with vivid watercolor animation illuminating the role of the Nuxalk oral tradition and the intersection of story, place and culture.
Screening on: Sunday, March 6th in the
Aboriginal Film Showcase from
10:30 am - 12:30 pm.
FLAWED directed by Andrea Dorfman
A beautiful gift from Andrea Dorfman’s vivid imagination, a charming little film about very big ideas. In FLAWED she deftly traces her encounter with a potential romantic partner, questioning her attraction and the uneasy possibility of love. But, ultimately, FLAWED is less about whether girl can get along with boy than whether girl can accept herself, imperfections and all.
Screening on: Sunday, March 6th in The Ones We Love Showcase from
1:00 pm - 3:00 pm.
