Get Animated With The NFB

Year 2017
Runtime 60 mins

EVENT MOVED TO TO RAMADA HOTEL DOWNTOWN CALGARY (708 8 AVE SW)

For many years now, the National Film Board (NFB) has been synonymous with animated films - from the Academy-Award winning RYAN to the classic THE CAT CAME BACK.

For some filmmakers, a project with the National Film Board is just a dream; for others, it becomes a years-long partnership that results in amazing work that just can't be done anywhere else.

Come meet three local filmmakers whose animated projects WALL and SKIN FOR SKIN were created in two very different processes with the NFB. Hear how much time it takes to go from concept to production to completion, and the challenges along the way. Whether you're a fan of classic and cutting edge animation, or you think you've got an amazing film just rattling around in your cranium - you need to be here.
