NFB Bringing New and Restored Animations to TIFF

NFB-150-2

The National Film Board of Canada will present a diverse seven-film line up at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival (September 4-14); including a selection of new and restored animation gems for discerning toon palettes.

The Short Cuts Canada Program will feature Oscar-winning filmmaker Torill Kove’s (The Danish Poet) autobiographical short animation, Me and My Moulton, about a little girl’s desire to fit in; Toronto-based director Randall Okita’s first fully animated film The Weatherman and the Shadowboxer; and in tribute to the 100th anniversary of groundbreaking animator and NFB animation studio founder Norman McLaren’s birth, the Board has restored Around Is Around (1951) and O Canada (1952) — eye-popping 3-D stereoscopy experiments created with his frequent collaborator Evelyn Lambart.
