Canadian animation legend Marv Newland (Postalolio, Bambi Meets Godzilla) has been charged with curating Vancouver International Film Festival’s second annual “Kooks and Legends” animation showcase. VIFF kicked off Sept. 29 and runs through October 14, with “Kooks and Legends” playing October 11 at 6 p.m. at The Rio Theatre.
Presented by Atomic Cartoons, the showcase will feature a 90-minute program of rare and never-seen short films by both Canadian and international filmmakers, selected by Newland. Films by mostly independent animators representing a range of creative approaches and techniques will be in the mix.
Tickets are available on the VIFF website here.
