Short Film Programs

Indigenous Spotlight

10:30 AM – 75 minutes

These storytellers draw us closer to their inner worlds and shine a new light on Indigenous experience and culture.

Themes: family, the natural world, honouring traditional knowledge, spiritual worlds

Animate and Relate

12:00 PM – 75 minutes

These shorts highlight how things correlate. Representing the finest animation of the year, they are best suited for the youngest among us, including the inner child of any adults.

Themes: connection, comedy, family, friendship

It’s a Girl’s Life

1:30 PM – 75 minutes

Often misunderstood, and rarely the focus of our collective attention, girls take centre stage in this mixture of zany, playful, and serious depictions of, well, girls being girls.

Themes: family, religion, racism, feminism, comedy


Cut Out Animation

A variety of pre-fashioned and cut out materials will be used to create characters and sets. In small groups, using video capture techniques, students will be taken through the steps of creating a short story.


Students get animated! Choreographed by the instructor, the class will glide, disappear and fly through the air. This is a great introduction to special effects and stop motion animation.

Objects in Motion

Using everyday office and school supplies, students will animate objects in new, silly, and imaginative ways.

Light Box Animation

Using a pencil and paper children and youth will draw images over top a light box, bringing their creative work life.

Every time we get behind the wheel, we make decisions with life and death implications. Brake or swerve? Quick! Decide! Cardboard Crash is an interactive VR experience that explores whether we’re ready to hand over such ethically fraught decisions to artificial intelligence (AI). In this self-driving vehicle, the passenger is expected to make a split second decision when confronted with an imminent collision. There is plenty of data, but no easy answer.

Tidal Traces is a 360-video VR dance piece that places viewers in the centre of the performance. In it, three characters explore a new and uncertain world—moving between tranquility and ominousness, beauty and peril. Entangled in this tension, the viewer becomes the fourth character, directly composing the dance through their gaze.
