About NFB of Canada Animated Shorts Program

Animation, Experimental
The National Film Board of Canada (NFB) has long nurtured the art of animation. In contrast to commercial industries in North America, the NFB encourages diversity and innovation, allowing filmmakers the freedom to explore unconventional techniques and express culturally marginalized points of view. In this evening’s Underground screening, we present 10 of our favorite NFB animated shorts, which include the sand animation The Owl Who Married a Goose, an Oscar-nominated hand-painted short, Wild Life, and Norman McLaren’s famous pixilation, Neighbors.
