NFB Animation on TCM – April 9th

SchoolWood is proud to announce that Ellen Besen and Aubry Mintz will be guest presenters of an evening of NFB Animation on TCM (Turner Classic Movie Channel) on April 9th at 8:00 PM EST (5pm Pacific). The program will survey the incredible body of work produced by the National Film Board of Canada in this medium from the early 1940’s to the end of the 1990’s.

Norman MacLaren, Caroline Leaf and Richard Condie are just a few of the animators who’s greatest works will screened. Over the course of the last year, Aubry and Ellen viewed and researched many titles from the NFB archives to create this 4 hour package which includes the work of more than 30 directors working in a variety of techniques. As part of the presentation, they will be discussing the films with TCM Host Ben Mankiewicz.
