Festival starts in


An intimate look at cinematographic creation, this visual essay shares with us secrets of the legendary Canadian animator Norman McLaren and his personal view of filmmaking. McLaren’s Negatives has been presented in over 150 film festivals and receives many awards.

This film is part of the Vidéographe 50th Anniversary Program: The Vidéographes--Behind The Frames.

Director’s Statement

To me, Norman Mclaren is the greatest film animator of all time. Not only is his body of work rich and inspirational, it also shows a unique approach to filmmaking through visual and technical innovations. My fascination for this master of animation has pushed me to make a short animated documentary film as an homage to his genius.
