Me and My Moulton
Me and My Moulton, Torill Kove, provided by the National Film Board of Canada
Torill Kove‘s beautifully animated short about three sisters, their quirky architect parents, and a dream bicycle, was part of the TIFF 2014 Short Cuts programme. After it’s run at TIFF and OIAF, Me and My Moulton was nominated for an Annie Award and went on to become our 73rd film nominated for an Academy Award!

Subconscious Password, Chris Landreth, provided by the National Film Board of Canada
Part of the TIFF 2013 Short Cuts programme, Oscar®-winner Chris Landreth‘s latest film is an uninhibited journey into the subconscious of a man who just can’t remember a long-lost friend’s name. Subconscious Password won the highest short animation honour at Annecy (Le Cristal d’Annecy) and won Best Animated Short at the Canadian Screen Awards!
Impromptu, Bruce Alcock, provided by the National Film Board of Canada
Bruce Alcock‘s Impromptu is the final animated film we’ve selected, and like Subconscious Password, was part of the TIFF 2013 Short Cuts programme. The film is a Woody Allen-ish take on a dinner-for-two that quickly turns into total pandemonium when friends and co-workers end up crashing the would-have-been romantic event.
Pink Ribbons Inc.
Pink Ribbons Inc., Léa Pool, provided by the National Film Board of Canada
Léa Pool‘s documentary on the pink ribbon campaign and cause-related marketing premiered at TIFF 2011 and is based on Samantha King’s book, Pink Ribbons, Inc: Breast Cancer and the Politics of Philanthropy. Each year, millions of dollars are raised in the name of breast cancer, but where does this money go and what does it actually achieve? Rent the doc and find out!
Hi-Ho Mistahey!, Alanis Obomsawin, provided by the National Film Board of Canada
Featured in the TIFF Docs section of TIFF 2013, Alanis Obomsawin’s film follows the progress of Shannen’s Dream, a national campaign to secure safe and equitable education for First Nations children, as advocates make their way to the United Nations. This doc is part of a trilogy of films Alanis has directed over the years: the first being The People of the Kattawapiskak River and the final installment is Trick or Treaty?
