The Ottawa Animation Festival was great fun, and Jennie Vallis (Digital Coordinator), and Karilynn Thompson (Programming and GIRAF Festival Director) were honoured to attend to present C’est La Vie: The Chris J. Melnychuk Story.  C’est La Vie played to an enthusiastic audience, and has received many a kind word from animators around the world.  Thanks to the animation team that made this film possible!

OIAF was fantastic, from Shorts Screenings, a sneak peak of Hotel Transilvania, character design workshops with Phil Rynda (AdventureTime).  We met up with many friends, old and new! Thanks for a great fest – we’ll be back next year!
