There are all kinds of ways to tell a story. Paints, pastels, textiles and even text from a typewriter (your grandparents can tell you what that last one is) are used here. The stories told include a weasel who learns the hard way that if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em. There are Shammies who take care of one another when each catches a cold, and, of course, imaginative lemmings ordering items online to be delivered by drones. These films may animate YOU to tell your own stories!

Film lineup is subject to change without notice.
