BLEAKERHEAD or … Labours of Love and Technology

The art and engineering of short animated films can be mind-boggling. Brilliant ideas, technical wizardry and often years of painstaking care go into creating just a few moments of pure genius onscreen. Be treated to an evening of the world’s top animated shorts, with a peek into the art and technology involved, curated by award-winning Calgary animators, Wendy Tilby and Amanda Forbis. And it gets better.

After the films, the outdoor Brainasium will be open to explore.
