Animation with Love, Home Sweet Home

The Centre for Art Tapes is pleased to present Animation with Love, Home Sweet Home, a one night only screening of contemporary animation shorts, Thursday, May 26, 2011 at 7:00p.m. at the Carbon Arc Cinema in the Khyber Arts building (1588 Barrington St.).

Each year the Centre for Art Tapes organizes a screening dedicated solely to the art of animation. Siloën Daley and Dylan Edwards curated this year’s screening and chose the theme of Animation with Love, Home Sweet Home.

Speaking on her motivations when curating this screening Siloën says “My favorite part about short films, and short animated films in particular, is experiencing beautiful and creative worlds along with the artist’s personal stories.” Dylan shares his thoughts on the artform: “Animation is unique in its potential to bring a creator’s inner world to life, showing us places that are impossible, yet perfectly understandable.”

Animation with Love, Home Sweet Home includes animations by local, national and international animators. Artists included in the screening are Andrea Dorfman, Odessa Shuquaya, Tara Wells, Jyelle Vogel, Madi Piller, Neely Goniodsky, Dorota Forfa, Nick Fox-Geig, Kandis Friesen, Allison Comrie, Eva Madden-Hagen, Ilse Kramer, Leslie Supnet, Michelle Latimer and Terril Calder, Nancy Jean Tucker, Steve Wiseman, Melanie Colosimo, Elizabeth Belliveau, and Jess MacCormack.

Join us Thursday, May 26, 2011 at 7:00p.m. (doors at 6:30p.m.) at the Carbon Arc Cinema in the Khyber Arts building (1588 Barrington St.). This event is always a sold-out affair. Come early to ensure your seat.
