The invention of animation has freed cinema from limitations such as aging actors, gravity, and difficulties in showcasing the notoriously shy talking animal intelligentsia. Support animated innovation with today's Groupon for the Waterloo Festival for Animated Cinema, held November 18–21 at The Gig Theatre in downtown Kitchener. Now in its 10th year, the Waterloo Festival is the only film festival in the world dedicated to screening animated feature films in every visual and storytelling style. The four-day festival raises awareness of both the beloved, innovative genre and the careers of its actors, often overlooked because of their two-dimensionality and lack of a nervous system. The cinematic line-up incorporates work from all over the world and includes selections for children and adults alike. Choose one of the following ticket packages:
- For $18, you get three adult admission tickets (a $36 value).
- For $12, you get three student/children admission tickets (a $24 value).
The Waterloo Festival for Animated Cinema and its founder, Joseph Chen, were recently featured in The Record:
- When Chen organized the first animated film festival 10 years ago, it attracted about 650 people. It has grown steadily since and last year’s festival attracted more than 1,100 fans. – Terry Pender
