This year’s crop of Hothouse short films are online for your viewing pleasure. I love this program. Years ago there was funding for what was called “calling card films”. An opportunity for young film-makers to independently produce a film that would showcase their aesthetic and story sense. I can’t remember now if it was the OMDC or the Bell Fund, but it was great. Then it went away. This is the NFB’s answer to it, and I love that it exists.
Ok, enough from me. Go watch films: https://www.nfb.ca/playlist/hothouse?utm_campaign=programming&utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social-media&utm_content=film
