With the summer festival season more or less cancelled, including Sled Island 2020, the good folks at Sled figured out a way to squeeze every ounce of goodness from the bag of lemons we were given with a brand new initiative: The Sled Island Lemonade Stand. From Monday, June 22 until Sunday, June 28, they’ll be doing what they can to tip a hat to the festival week that would have been with a series of free or accessibly-priced livestreams, film screenings, comedy and DJ sets and varied activities taking place both online and in-person.
Quickdraw is pleased as lemony punch to take part in this semi-sled celebration, with a Quickdraw member year-in-review. Featuring a mix of student films, member works, and a collaborative animation made as part of Beakerhead, this incredible showcase is a celebration of Calgary’s independent animation community!
Head over to the Quickdraw Vimeo page any time on the week of June 22 and join in the celebration — or just watch it above — and be sure to check out the rest of the Lemonade Stand lineup, too!
