Lights, Cameras, Lift-Off!

After months of bated excitement, the day is finally here: the SPARK ANIMATION FESTIVAL starts at 7:15 pm tonight!

The Spark Animation Celebration! will kick off the festival, recognizing the best in the world of animation. From this year’s Spark Lifetime Achievement Award to Bonnie Arnold, the presentation of the WIA Diversity Awards, and as well as the award-winning SPARK films as selected by the Festival Jury, it truly is a night to celebrate! We hope you’ll join us and partake in the excitement.

The evening will close with a very special event, “A Klaus Conversation with Sergio Pablos hosted by Glen Keane”, featuring exclusive footage and discussion of the highly anticipated Netflix film. This session is sold out but limited rush tickets will be available at the venue.

Don’t forget: if you have a conference pass, you can also attend the film festival screenings. Come on down and join the celebration!

Tickets to all of the other screenings, including tomorrow’s BC Premieres of Gints Zilbalodis’ award-winning film Away, and Masaaki Yuasa’s innovative romance Ride Your Wave, are still available for online purchase.

Net proceeds from this year’s film festival screenings will be donated to Covenant House Vancouver.
