NFB Oscar Winners of Canada

Wednesday, May 6 at 9:00pm  |  $8  |

See every single Oscar winning animation from Canada!

The National Film Board of Canada has received more Academy Award nominations than any other organization outside Hollywood. To celebrate the NFB's 75th birthday, NW Animation Fest has arranged for a special screening of every film from the Great White North that has ever won Best Animated Short Film.

Launching off from animation legend Norman McLaren's early work with the fledgling NFB, we time travel from the powerful anti-war statement, "Neighbors," in 1952 to Torill Kove's ever-charming "The Danish Poet" in 2006. Along the way, we see not only the technological evolution of this illusionist's art form, but also surprising snapshots of shifting cinematic culture and the society which it reflects.
