The Image Mill Projection Show’s Farewell
In collaboration with the National Film Board of Canada (NFB), the last edition of
The Image Mill projection show, beginning in summer 2013, will take the form of a tribute to filmmaker Norman McLaren.
The innovative work he created at the NFB from 1941 to 1983 constitutes a major contribution to animation cinema, one that brought him international recognition. Over his long career, Norman McLaren received an impressive number of awards, including an Oscar for Neighbours and a Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival for Blinkity Blank.
