Chris Robinson is the Artistic Director of the Ottawa International Animation Festival, Contributing Editor at AWN.com and author of thirteen highly original books. Infused with a broad spectrum of references ranging from philosophy and art to sports, they are at times autobiographical and tackle a number of topics from an eminently personal point of view. He also wrote the screenplay for the award-winning animation short Lipsett Diaries. Robinson is currently working on a graphic novel with Andreas Hykade called My Balls are Killing Me, a magic realist memoir about his year battling cancer. Chris will moderate the Meet the Filmmakers friday night at Litteraturhuset.
