KWAG Film Series: Animated Shorts, 7:00-9:00 pm

Programmed by Emily Pelstring, this collection of short animated films spans from the 1950s to 2022. Each film has inspired Pelstring’s own approach to animation as featured in her current exhibition, The Passion of the Hedge-Rider. Emily Pelstring will be present for discussion following the screening.

This screening takes place at Kitchener Public Library's Central Branch at 85 Queen Street North, Kitchener.
