Post-screening Q&A with Jamie Miller, director of A Prince's Tale, winner of the Best Canadian Short Film Award.

Lotte That Silhouette Girl
D: Elizabeth Beecherl, Carla Patullo | 2018 | USA | 10 mins | G
Before Walt Disney, there was Lotte Reiniger, a trailblazing woman at the vanguard of animation.

Smithy & Dickie
D: Hannah Quinn | 2017 | Ireland | 10 mins | GUntil quite recently, memories and precious moments were tangibly captured in photos, letters and notes. The beginning of Smithy and Dickie's courtship is forever memorialized in a series of sweet missives they wrote each other in the 1940s.

I Love Your Fucking Name
D: Finn O'Hara | 2017 | Canada | 8 mins | PG
Meet Elizabeth Taylor, Sarah McLachlan and a real-life Peter Pan in this hilarious look at the way some names can't help but be a conversation starter at every single introduction.

Tungrus
D: Rishi Chandna | 2017 | India | 14 mins | PG
A middle-class Mumbai household is turned upside down by the arrival of a new family member—a cute chick who quickly grows into a hell-raising rooster.

I Am Bisha
D: Roopa Gogineni | 2018 | USA, Kenya | 14 mins | PG
A long-standing civil war and a dearth of media outlets has left the people of Sudan without access to relevant news. Ganja, a young pacifist, finds a novel way to disseminate information.

Carlotta's Face
D: Valentin Riedl, Friedrich Schuld | 2018 | Germany | 5 mins | G
When Carlotta looks in the mirror, she doesn't recognize the image reflected back at her. This beautifully animated portrait explores the confusion that face blindness causes for a young child trying to make sense of her world.

Prince's Tale
D: Jamie Miller | 2017 | Canada | 16 min | PG
After surviving a fire that drastically changes his body, a young man makes the bold, life-affirming choice to express himself through his arrestingly beautiful performance art and love for acting.
