National Film Board's “Get Animated!” event comes to Richmond

The Sound Collector by Lynn Smith, National Film Board of Canada

Leonard is a six-year-old boy with an unusual hobby—collecting sounds.

Transforming household noises into exciting fantasies, Leonard creates an adventure story for his brother in which knights chase away monsters.

So goes the story of The Sound Collector, one of several animated short films being screened at Richmond Public Library on Sunday.

The free screenings are part of the National Film Board event “Get Animated!” which is being staged in Richmond by the Cinevolution Media Arts Society.

The first set of screenings is aimed at families (ages five and up) and begins at 1 p.m. in the library’s Brighouse branch. The second session is at 2 p.m. and is for ages 10 and up. The final screening session, at 3 p.m., features a series of films for adults.

An animation workshop will also take place inside the cultural centre’s media lab from 2 to 4:30 p.m.

Admission is free to the Nov. 4 event. Visit cinevolutionmedia.com for more information.
