About the Movie
After an unusual and inspiring dream, a frustrated theatre director attempts to push a group of eager young performers out of their comfort zones with a project that involves becoming furry animals in the real world.
I love this film!
I was lucky enough to be at a sold-out screening of this movie at the Toronto International Film Festival. In the Q&A, Ingrid spoke about how she cast the film first, promising roles to eight actors, and then she wrote the script. There is no doubt, Ingrid is the DIY queen of Canadian filmmaking. THE ANIMAL PROJECT is inventive, funny, poignant - a great film from start to finish!
Dive in with both feet and enjoy the journey!
Ingrid Veninger is a champion for women filmmakers around the world. She’s a beautiful soul that inspires extraordinary, in her and others, where many are simply content with the ordinary. The Animal Project is overflowing with passion; provocative moments of silence and most importantly, love. And the most beautiful aspect of this film is that it’s a very accessible story because of its honest portrayal in exploring and celebrating the human spirit.
A REAL GEM!
Ingrid Veninger delivers yet another thoughtful, heartwarming, and thoroughly entertaining slide-of-life story that engages at every turn. Her body of work brings to mind the films of the legendary John Cassavetes without in any way seeming derivative. Indeed, this film really showcases her unique voice, and her special gift for bringing out the very best in her ensemble cast. A real treat!
