Stronger Together: Films about Family and Community

My Name is Edgar and I Have a Cow DIRECTOR: Filip Diviak . Czechia . 7 minutes A delightful animated film which follows Edgar as his life is disrupted by a newborn calf he sees on a tourist trip to a slaughterhouse. This film will have you giggling with glee thanks to its quirky animation and matter-of-fact narration.

Look Up DIRECTOR: Maika Hearson . NL . 4 minutes A hopeful look at how technology changes our perception of the world around us, this film follows Samuel who is challenged to give up his phone for a week. Boredom and emotional distance soon turn to an exciting new view of the world around him.

World's Greatest Dad DIRECTOR: 2023 Winter NIFCO Film Class, Brad Gover (Mentor) . NL . 6 minutes After his daughter makes him a “World’s Greatest Dad” bracelet, a distracted father sets out to do a long list of errands. After several encounters with another man sporting a “World’s Greatest Dad” bracelet, the father comes to realize where his attention should lie. A touching story that urges us to take a step back and appreciate the ones we love.

The Golden League DIRECTOR: Vaida Nairn . Canada . 11 minutes Every winter in St. John’s, Newfoundland, a group of women, largely new to the sport and ranging in age from late teens to seventies, meet once a week to play recreational ice hockey, learn new skills and forge friendships. The Golden League is a heartwarming story of community building, friendship, and sport.

Philippe, a Lake and a Dream DIRECTOR: Stéphanie Gagné, Philippe Belley . Quebec . 52 minutes A sedentary father sets the lofty goal of swimming across Lac Saint-Jean with his daughter. This powerful film is not just about a 32km swim, it’s about resilience, family, and community. Phillipe proves that working towards something with the ones you love is worth much more than reaching the finish line.
