Toronto, ON – The Vancouver-based Oscar-winning animation duo of Alison Snowden and David Fine has received another Academy Award nomination—for their hilarious new National Film Board of Canada (NFB) animated short Animal Behaviour, taking us inside a group therapy session for animals who grapple with issues not unlike like our own.
Animal Behaviour is produced and executive produced by Michael Fukushima for the NFB’s English-language Animation Studio in Montreal.
The NFB is bringing all Canadians into the Oscar celebration with two weeks of free streaming of Animal Behaviour, from February 11 to 24 on NFB.ca, Facebook, Vimeo and YouTube.
“We are so touched and honoured that Animal Behaviour has been recognized this way by Academy voters,” said Alison Snowden and David Fine. “We are grateful for the fantastic support the film has had from everyone who worked on it in Vancouver, Montreal and at the NFB. It’s wonderful to come back to making a short film with the NFB after so long and have this recognition. Humbling, to say the least.”
