Fyoog - Curtis Horsburgh - 2016 | 1 min
Please stand clear of the doors... This very short hybrid of stop-motion and 2D animation is a story about a dream about a train, inspired by found sound of a Toronto subway car. 



Hedgehog's Home - Eva Cvijanovic - 2016 | 10 min
Based on the story by Branko Ćopić, this animated short tells the tale of a hedgehog living in a lush and lively forest. He is respected and envied by the other animals.

Pumpers - Pascaline Lefebvre - 2016 | 1 min
Inspired by found sound of baby noises, this very short animation takes a good hard look at the bizarre behaviour of people working out in a gym. 



Blind Vaysha - Theodore Ushev - 2016 | 8 min
In this metaphoric tale of timeless wisdom and beauty based on the eponymous short story by Georgi Gospodinov, filmmaker Theodore Ushev reminds us of the importance of keeping our sights on the present moment. Nominated for the acadamy award for best Animated Short film 2017!



The Great Machine - Luc Chamberland - 2015 | 4 min

In the small Ontario town of Echo, deep underground a typical post-war apartment building, there is a machine - massive and seemingly endless. What is its purpose? What is it for?


Three Thousand - Asinnajaq - 2017 | 14 min
My father was born in a spring igloo-half snow, half skin. I was born in a hospital, with jaundice and two teeth. Inuit artist Asinnajaq plunges us into a sublime imaginary universe-14 minutes of luminescent, archive-inspired cinema that recast the present, past and future of her people in a radiant new light. Diving into the NFB's vast archive, she parses the complicated cinematic representation of the Inuit, harvesting fleeting truths and fortuitous accidents from a range of sources-newsreels, propaganda, ethnographic docs, and work by Indigenous filmmakers. Embedding historic footage into original animation, she conjures up a vision of hope and beautiful possibility.
