This year’s Atlantic Auteurs program delivers an eclectic variety of short films, covering a wide spectrum of genres and technical approaches. The line-up consists of 11 brand new films from both newly discovered voices and some of HIFF’s most beloved alumni. We are honoured to be screening analogue animation patriarch James MacSwain’s latest film Bedtime, featuring cut- out animation of children in the 1950s paired with Jim's signature charming voice-over. Prince Edward Island’s Millefiore Clarkes brings us Solastalgia, a lyrical meditation on climate anxiety that poetically blends documentary and fiction. In Anthology for Fruits and Vegetables, Dawn George uses a meticulous eco-processing system to develop images of these edibles using their own “tea”, creating a deliciously rich and textured 16mm visual explosion. See these short films and more in this truly dynamic showcase of Atlantic talent. —Heather Young
