In honour of International Animation Day, we are serving up some of Canada’s finest animation, with offerings from up-and-coming filmmakers as well as some of the world’s most accomplished directors. Through its Get Animated! events, the NFB is bringing the magic of animation to communities across the country, with screenings and workshops to help you make your own animated films… and it’s all absolutely free!

Experience an amazing selection of films of all kinds, from the enjoyably quirky to the stunningly beautiful. So come join us and get animated!

FRI OCT 26 – New Releases
7:00 PM – Love and loss, and the mysteries of what could have been, take centre stage in this program of animated shorts. Be swept up in the fantasy of an in-flight romance, discover the secret story of a lost Polish town, meet a troubled young vampire and a man who is about to lose his head—and see how an office prank leads to one man’s full-blown transformation. These films have all been co-produced with the NFB’s international partners, and made by some of the world’s top animation directors. Approximate running time: 65 minutes

SAT OCT 27 – Family Program with Workshops
Bring the whole family to a special series of events offering kid-friendly animation fun for all. The Not So Scary Stories program of animated films features the quirky tale of a six-year-old who collects sounds, along with a colourful and charming fairy tale—perfect for children ages five and up. Friends and Monsters is for the 10+ crowd, with films about a very unusual set of twins and the unsettling experience of being in a new school. And don’t miss our hands-on animation workshops for children of all ages, demonstrating the basics of animation and giving you the chance to make your own animated short film!
