DAM! THE STORY OF KIT THE BEAVER
Director: Kjell Boersma
While Kit is busy discovering the world, her clan is busy building a dam. During her adventures in the forest, Kit teaches her clan about the value of working with others and she learns that progress can come in many forms. Through generosity and compassion, we can build relationships that strengthen and grow in ways that we could never imagine.
THE MOUNTAIN OF SGAANA
Director: Christopher Auchter
Christopher Auchter spins a magical tale of a young man who is stolen away to the spirit world, and the young woman who rescues him. The film brilliantly combines traditional animation with formal elements of Haida art, and is based on a story inspired by a old Haida fable.
Director: Jessie Ayles
We follow a group of dedicated conservationists around the Western Cape, South Africa, as they fight to keep the African penguin from extinction.
Director: Jan Van Ijken
A short film about the miraculous genesis of animal life. In great microscope detail, we see the “making of” an Alpine Newt in its transparent egg from the first cell division to hatching.
