The Centre for Art Tapes' animation program brings you Animation with Love! this week---a screening of short animated media from across the country. Curator and filmmaker Siloen Daley says she chose the theme of heartfelt art---and the name---as a way to spread beauty and positivity through the filmmakers' works. "We looked for heartfelt films, films that showed us that there was a sincere passion, and interest in either the medium, the subject they were talking about, the story they were telling...we were looking for something beautiful or something that inspired me as a viewer," she says. Aside from the close to 1,000 animations submitted, Daley also sought certain filmmakers, including the evening's closer: Andrea Dorfman's How to be Alone. Animations rounding out the night were created by Franny Deschanel, Hamish Lambert, Aparna Kapur, Neely Goniodsky, Leslie Supnet, Bethany Riordan-Butterworth, Chantal Tardiff, Jessica MacCormack, Nancy Jean Tucker, Colleen MacIsaac, Heui Won Jeong and Justin Murphy, Thea Pratt, Kunal Sen, Christina Felderhof (work above) and Tamzin Forster.
