Canadian Anijam Heads to Hot Docs
“I am thrilled and honored to have the Canadian premiere of Yellow Sticky Notes | Canadian Anijam at this year’s Hot Docs. For an animated film to get into an exclusive documentary festival is extremely rare, but I can see how the film could be considered an ‘anidoc’ because the film documents a day in the lives of each of the animators involved. Even though this is an entirely animated film, I feel it is also very much a new form of experimental documentary with its approach of documenting the past, present and future.” says Jeff Chiba Stearns, director of Yellow Sticky Notes | Canadian Anijam.
Yellow Sticky Notes Canadian Anijam had its world premiere in January 2013 at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival and has been officially accepted to many other prestigious North American and International Film Festivals including Cinequest Film Festival, International Film Festival of Cartegena de Indias, Animac, Cleveland International Film Festival, WorldFest – Houston International Independent Film Festival, Athens International Film + Video Festival, and the Melbourne International Animation Festival.
The film is screening at Hot Docs as part of the Canadian Spectrum series with the World Premiere of the feature documentary 15 Reasons to Live.
