Hey everybody! Do you like movies? Do you like the Oscars?
Animal Behaviour is one of five nominees for this year’s Oscars in the category of Animated Short Film. Produced and distributed by the National Film Board of Canada and brought to us by directors Alison Snowden and David Fine, who previously won the Academy Award for Best Animated Short for 1995’s Bob’s Birthday, Animal Behaviour tells the story of five animals who meet regularly to discuss their inner angst in a group therapy session led by Dr. Clement, a canine psychotherapist.
And where can you see such a fine piece before this year’s Oscars? Why, right here on this very blog! Until February 24th (Oscar night!), the NFB has made Animal Behaviour available for your streaming convenience! Just follow the link below.
