MTM Student Kate Reid’s Animated Film “Afraid” an Official Selection at NIFTY in Seattle!

All of us at Max the Mutt send congratulations to Kate Reid on the continuing international success of her short animated film “I’m Afraid” – a collaboration with her Unionville High School classmates testtest.

Before Kate had started year one at MTM, this film had been accepted into TAAFI – Toronto Animated Arts Festival International, Toronto Youth Shorts, Scout Film Festival in Stowe, Vermont, Animaze – Montreal International Animation Film Festival and the Teen Truth Film Festival and Santa Monica International Teen Film Festival in California.

We spoke with Kate’s family at the opening of  Max the Mutt’s  show of work by 2016-17 year one students. Kate couldn’t make it! She was in Seattle attending the NFFTY Film Festival (National Film Festival for Talented Youth) at which her film was an official selection.

“I’m Afraid”  demonstrates amazing storytelling instincts and will bring a tear to your eye.
