Vancouver’s Spark Computer Graphics Society has revealed the official lineup for the 2022 Spark Animation festival, taking place in-person from October 27-30 and online October 30 through November 30.
The in-person portion of the festival will kick off with the first Canadian screening of Nora Twomey’s My Father’s Dragon, with the filmmaker in attendance for a post-screening Q&A. That same evening, Henry Selick’s Wendell & Wild, which recently premiered at Toronto, will screen on Canada’s west coast for the first time. Selick will also be present for an in-person Q&A after the screening.
Spark 2022 will also host the world premiere of HaZ Dulull’s animated feature RIFT, animated using the Unreal Engine. Dulull and the film’s producer Paula Crickard will be in attendance to speak with the audience following the screening.
