Joe Chang is a Chinese/Canadian animator – he’ll be in town tomorrow giving a Masterclass workshop at the NWFF, and then attending a screening of shorts he curated at 3PM as part of the Children’s Film Festival called Joe Chang and Friends – contemporary animation from China and three of his own pieces. The screening takes place again on Feb 5th at 5PM (but without Joe Chang in attendance).
