Description

These short films were created by teams of Lisgar Collegiate Institute students over the course of a two-hour workshop called Animate Ottawa, a new initiative presented by the Ottawa International Animation Festival, in cooperation with the Community Foundation of Ottawa, and MASC (Multicultural Arts for Schools and Communities). Animate Ottawa is an in-class presentation that gives students the opportunity to explore animation and make films expressing what they love most about Ottawa. Participants first watch a program of independent Canadian short animation to get inspired, then create a short film under the guidance of animation expert, Tina LeMoine, from MASC. This program is made possible with the financial support of the Community Foundation of Ottawa, and the cooperation of MASC and the National Film Board of Canada. If you are interested in bringing Animate Ottawa to your school or want to know more about the program from the OIAF, email info@animationfestival.ca or call (613) 232-8769. ------- ABOUT THE OIAF The Ottawa International Animation Festival (OIAF) is one of the world’s leading animation events providing screenings, exhibits, workshops and entertainment since 1976.
