OTTAWA — In case you didn’t hear about it, Bambi once met Godzilla.
The encounter didn’t go well for the little deer, as you’ll see if you attend “Ten Reasons to Love Animation,” one of the special presentations at this year’s Ottawa International Animation Festival.
Running Sept. 21 to 25, the festival is the largest event of its kind in North America, with more than 150 films from around the world presented on screens around town, chosen from more than 2,000 that were submitted.
