Toronto Animation Fest to be Opened by Day of the Crows


The Toronto Animation Arts Festival International (TAAFI), which is scheduled for July 26 to 28 at the TIFF Bell Light House and Corus Quay, will open on a high note due to a special screening of the French hand-drawn animated film Day of the Crows, which is based on a novel by Canadian writer Jean-Francois Beauchemin and directed by Jean-Christophe Dessaint.

Another highlight of the event is the screening of the brand new animated comedy series Axe Cop (featuring the voice of Parks and Recreation’s Nick Offerman), which is based on the hit web comic written by eight year old Malachai Nicolle, and illustrated by his 32 year old brother Ethan Nicolle. The show will premiere on Fox as part of their late night animation block on July 27. TAAFI will be replaying the first episode on July 28, capped by a Q & A forum with the brothers via Skype.
