OUT OF THE COLD
Light on the Path
Georgette MacLoed, YT, 6m ani
When a young girl loses the only people who can protect her, how does she survive the difficult times? This is a story of resilience, hope, and exploring inner strength to overcome difficult family times.
Take the Wild
Krista Davis & Cari Tangedal, YT, 7m, exp
This work uses the metaphor of the Wild as an older, wiser lover encouraging us to let go of the structures and expectations of City in favour of getting caught up in her knowledge, her rythyms and her extremes.
Garbage Truck Santa
Brendan Preston, YT, 28m, doc
Ask a 5 year old from Whitehorse, Yukon how Santa gets around and there’s a good chance they’ll answer, “A GARBAGE TRUCK!” 20 years ago, Wayne Henderson, a City of Whitehorse Garbage Collector, wore a Santa suit to work and unwittingly started a holiday tradition that has captured the heart of a community.
Gail Noonan is a visual artist and filmmaker with a strong interest in music. Originally from the east coast, she made a slow westward migration with a sojourn in the middle to go to art school in Winnipeg where she lived for a number of years as a printmaker. A move to Vancouver prompted her to make a lateral transfer to film animation after a compressed two years of study at the Emily Carr Institute. She abandoned the city a number of years ago to live on Mayne Island which has allowed her to focus on making her films. “Sourdough Starter” is the latest of nine animated films produced so far. Currently she is exploring how to combine her interest in songwriting with animating unusual materials including her own aging flesh.
Sam Decoste is an artist based in Halifax. In 2015 she graduated from NSCAD University with an MFA in Media Arts: Animation.

She is currently animating stories of artists living in Paris in the 1930s in a film called Salon.

THE BIG FINISH
Guillaume Blanchet, QC, 4m, com
Ô Montreal ! With your endless winters, your streets covered with snow and mud... Hopefully, Montrealers have found a common ground by leaving shoes, boots and baby carriages at their front door. Whether they live in a house. Or a condo. That’s right.
Nimmikaage (She Dances for People)
Michelle Latimer, ON, 5m, exp
Both a requiem and an honouring of Canada’s First Nations, Métis and Inuit women, Michelle Latimer’s Nimmikaage (She Dances for People) deconstructs the layers beneath the recorded pageantry of Canadian nationalism.
Chad Galloway & Heather Benning, BC, 8m, exp
For decades, The Dollhouse stood in a frozen field just off of a prairie highway. Then, a match was lit and it was lost forever. Counterpointing the warm colours contained within the weathered structure with the harsh, seemingly uninhabitable hinterland outside, this is a document of the decommissioning of the human-scale dollhouse becomes a visually ravishing portrait of destruction.
