Six: Inside Hothouse 5

Top of page

Inside the Hothouse 5 takes an informal look into the personalities and frenzy behind the fifth iteration of the NFB Animation Hothouse. A hand-held mini-doc, reflective of the youthful iconoclasm of the six emerging filmmakers. The Hothouse filmmakers and their NFB collaborators offer candid and oftentimes pithy comments on the nature of auteur animation filmmaking, the place and role of the NFB in that world, and the excitement and fear of making a first professional film. This year's Inside the Hothouse mini-doc includes the process of generating podcasts for the Hothouse 5 web site.
