STASH: Love, Friendship & other Mishaps

Wednesday, November 2rd l 8:00 pm l Grand Hall


Do you know someone who has fallen in love with a candy machine? Or someone who had a hyena as a best friend? Although emotional relationships can sometimes cause quite a bit of trouble, would our lives be fulfilled if there wasn’t someone whose affection was proof of our existence? Animanima’s new collection of animated and VFX works (TV commercials, music videos, short films, game trailers, branded content) was “happily found” in the endless abundance of Toronto-based video portal STASH. We are talking about an online video library that offers about 6,000 projects related to advertising, music videos, short animated films and other visual content, which makes it the largest of its kind in the world. STASH’s permanent collection is equally enjoyed by ordinary lovers as well as dedicated professionals. This year, Animanima brings just a small portion from that treasury in a screening whose title sounds twisted, but, as we already know – matters of the heart are serious!
