I'm very happy to see that Kelly Turnbull's barbarian/zombie film is in the program as well. I didn't see it in the trailer so I was wondering whether it was going to be screened at the Bloor. Kelly is a hugely talented cartoonist (best kind of animator in my book) and her film is a hoot! Looks like a very impressive playlist and I'll do my best to spread the word.
