INDIE ANIMATION MIXTAPE: SIDE D
Collecting our favourite animated films from around the globe, the Indie Animation Mixtape is where to turn for a sampling of everything animation is great at. Side D opens with A Bite of Bone, the grand-prize winner at the Ottawa International Animation Festival, about as strong an opener as you could hope for. The rest of the pack mixes the magical and the mundane, through the eyes of filmmakers who can find beauty in both. After the stop-motion fables and abstract explorations, the mixtape wraps up with a simple gesture of connection--just what’s needed in the world today.
