Montreal Animated Film Summit
And so begins the Montreal Animated Film Summit, a competition of sorts that is annual and this year we have 125 shorts entered to be judged and enjoyed by the audience that has gathered at the Cinémathèque québécoise. In choosing this venue, they have allowed the summit to reach record capacity.
Beginning today in Montreal and continuing through Sunday is the 11th annual Montreal Animated Film Summit (Les Sommets du cinéma d’animation de Montréal, for all you fancy French speakers). This year’s event, the largest yet, takes place at the Cinémathèque québécoise.
The Summit will present over 125 animated shorts as part of competition screenings and panoramas. Special guests include David OReilly, who will present his work on Friday evening, as well as Franck Dion (director of the NFB short Edmond was a Donkey) and experimental filmmaker Steven Woloshen. A range of workshops, exhibitions and discussions accompany the film screenings.
