Giant Bear wins Canadian Screen Award

Giant Bear walked away from the final night of the Canadian Screen Awards with the award for Best Animated Short. Last night’s win of one of Canada’s most prestigious screen awards also qualifies Giant Bear for Oscar consideration. Produced by Iqaluit-based Taqqut Productions and Montreal-based edfilms, the short animation, which is based on a book of the same name, tells the story of a lone hunter who stumbles across an unusually large aglu—or breathing hole—before realizing it’s being kept open by a nanurluk—a mythological giant polar bear—sleeping under the ice.
