Cabin Fever: The Dog Who Stopped the War

Sun, Feb 14 / 12 pm
Free to view!
Directed by André Melançon
1984, Canada, 92 min

Followed by a free animation workshop with Art City!

Over their holiday break a rag tag group of Quebecois children decide to have a mock war and split off into two factions for a momentous snowball fight. The prize: a giant fortress of snow. Skirmishes ensue in preparation for the big battle and when tragedy eventually strikes the kids learn a valuable lesson about war.


GIF and Short Animation Workshops with Art City!

Using a few different online apps, you will be creating GIFs and short animations with the help of an artist from Art City. Recreate your fave GIF! Make a GIF or animation with your own face! Make an animation that rotates 360 degrees! We will start with the easier things and then get more complex over the course of the eight weeks of workshops each Sunday afternoon. You don’t have to participate in all eight weeks to learn though! We will have options for people who want to drop any week and for people who come each week to build more and more basic animation skills.

WHAT YOU NEED:

Internet access and preferably a computer or laptop, but an iPad, iPhone, or Android also work well (some apps have worked less well on androids but not usually).

ABOUT ART CITY:

Art City is a not-for-profit community art studio dedicated to providing people of all ages with innovative and professional art programming, free of charge.


This free program is presented with the support of the Province of Manitoba’s Safe at Home program. Visit safeathomemb.ca for a list of other programs available for free.

Reviews

A holiday perennial that has stood the test of time as one of Canada's premier children's films. The Dog Who Stopped the War is the perfect family film, It is a film for all ages, and one that will hopefully be passed on from generation to generation as THE Canadian holiday classic.
