Another weekend, another gathering of cartoon aficionados: this time at the TIFF Lightbox in Toronto, where the Toronto Animated Arts Festival International (TAAFI) was launched from July 6-8. There were good shorts programmes and workshops, and a couple of very special events. One was the screening of Nelvana’s ill-fated “Rock and Rule” from 1984, attended by many alumni of the production; another was a Kaj Pindal retrospective, followed by the closing ceremony at which Kaj received a lifetime-achievement award. The whole thing was well done, and the venue is fabulous. Don’t miss it next year.
