The Image Mill – Tribute to Norman McLaren, Animation Pioneer

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.

Born in Stirling, Scotland, in 1914, McLaren is regarded as a world pioneer in animated film. 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. McLaren was closely associated with the National Film Board of Canada, and part of his work was developed in Montreal from 1956 to 1983 during a period of cultural and political turmoil in Quebec.

The Image Mill - Tribute to Norman McLaren, Animation Pioneer will premiere on June 23 2013.
