Animation Highlights

The animated short films this year are stronger than usual with four excellent entries aimed at adults, plus a beautiful parable for young people. A variety of styles and back stories add intrigue and meaning.

* Based on a true story, we encounter a sailor flung high in the air by a Halifax harbor explosion, whose life floats before his eyes while airborne.
* A widower and his young son soar by parachute every day from the their home on an icy mountaintop, until the ice melts and disaster looms.

* A beautifully rendered story of kindness and acceptance featuring a boy and his animal friends.
* A cheeky look at an under-performing toaster salesman who learns that his entire world is a stop motion simulation. 
* The final film is not for kids: A Texas teenager humorously explores her blossoming libido and desire for intimacy, only to realize the choice of potential partners is not to her liking.  

The animated shorts screen Saturdays and Sundays at 3:30 pm Feb 17 through Mar 11.
