FESTIVAL SCHEDULE: April 10

Nadine

Sam must summon his inner samurai to fight the monster known as his anxiety. Real courage is conquering fear, but that doesn’t change the fact that it can be terrifying to speak to the girl you like. Combining live action and several types of animation, Nadine captures the hormonal rollercoaster of first feelings. 

Themes: fear, pressure, finding balance, cultural lessons

CANADIAN PREMIERE

Over 400 years ago British privateer Sir Francis Drake led expeditions through much of the Americas. Eventually, he landed in Barra de Potosí, off the Pacific coast of Mexico, where today two environmental scientists are living and doing research with their children. Six-year-old Dylan is enjoying this tropical getaway, whereas his older sister Andrea misses her home. In a small beach-side classroom, Jacinta and the other students welcome the siblings to join fun, hands-on lessons about baby sea turtles, crabs, birds, whales, and other fauna and flora indigenous to the environment.

Students shape and mold characters with plasticine, and using stop-motion animation, will create short films in small groups. The plastacine is messy, and all kinds of fun!
