Hothouse 10: September 8 — November 28, 2014

About Hothouse 10

Program Dates: September 8 – November 28, 2014
Theme: Found Sound
Mentoring Director: Chris Landreth

We celebrated our 10th anniversary by going back to our roots – back to what makes animation such a unique form of expression, subversion, and satire. We trolled through a wealth of archives and discovered 20 audio clips that were intriguing, unusual, unnerving, or somehow full of subtext and hidden meaning. We put out a call for submissions that would re-interpret one of the chosen audio tracks to comment on or play with the original meaning. Needless to say, the range of expressions and approaches we saw was astonishing.

Hothouse continues to be about re-imagining ways of making animation, ways that are faster, more flexible, and which embrace the many possibilities in the animation process while maintaining creative and technical excellence.

The 2014 edition of Hothouse marked a partnership with the Mexican Film Institute, and we welcomed two Mexican animators into the Hothouse fold to work alongside six emerging Canadian animators.
