Indie Animation Mixtape: Side A
run time: 60 Min | Streaming at watch.ffyyc.ca
Discord watch party: 7pm, November 19
Each year, Quickdraw scours the globe for surprising, genre-bending, artistically adventurous independent animation to compile into our ongoing Indie Animation Mixtapes. For 2020, we found so many new favourites that there was no choice but to expand it into four full programs.
Side A of the Indie Animation Mixtape features absurd humour, dark fables, diverse perspectives and brilliant techniques. It's a perfect introduction to the animated treats we have in store for you this year. We're also proud to debut Abbey Bennett's made-at-Quickdraw film Darkening, created through the Chris J. Melnychuk Memorial Scholarship & Residency — and especially to present it with a collection of masterpieces from around the world.
Please note: Ticket purchases are restricted to Alberta residents. Many films at GIRAF deal with mature subjects, and are not recommended for young audiences.
