Canadians going to Sundance

Five Canadian directors, including The Cat Came Back animator Cordell Barker, are among those bringing shorts to the Sundance Film Festival.

LOS ANGELES — Five Canadian directors, including The Cat Came Back animator Cordell Barker, are among those bringing shorts to the Sundance Film Festival.

The animated selections from Canada include Barker’s satire, Runaway, which won a special jury award at the Annecy International Animation Film Festival; David Coquard-Dassault’s Rains, a Canada/France meditation on our relationship with nature, and Bruce Alcock’s Vive la Rose, in which a man sings a plaintive song about lost love.

Dramatic shorts from Canada include Jamie Travis’s mysterious tale of a missing boy in The Armoire and a meditation on the Inuit seal-hunt, Tungijuq, from Paul Raphael and Felix Lajeunesse.

Robert Redford’s independent-film showcase runs Jan. 21-31 in Park City, Utah.
