TIFF Kids to Celebrate 40 Years of Aardman Animations

The TIFF Kids International Film Festival, taking place in Toronto April 8-24, is planning a special 40th-anniversary program to celebrate the achievements of Aardman Animations. The U.K. studio is responsible for beloved shorts and features starring beloved characters like Morph, Wallace & Gromit and Shaun the Sheep.

The Aardman’s 40th Anniversary Retrospective will look at how the studio’s creations have evolved from purely traditional stop-motion fare through CG-augmented masterpieces, highlighting Peter Lord’s Grand Morph’s Home Movies (1981), Nick Park’s Oscar-winning, 30-minute short The Wrong Trousers (1993) and Jay Grace’s Shaun the Sheep “3DTV” (2014). The lineup also includes samplings of Purple & Brown, Creature Comforts and commercial work, and even the original cel-animated Aardman cartoon.

TIFF Kids’ Aardman retrospective will screen Sunday, April 17 at 1 p.m. and Sunday, April 24 at 10:15 a.m. at the TIFF Bell Lightbox. Click here for the complete film lineup and to purchase tickets.
