Snowscreen -- literally a massive block of snow -- features local animators Richard Condie (The Big Snit), Cordell Barker (The Cat Came Back) and National Film Board perennials The Sweater and Log Driver's Waltz. Relationship drama Who Loves the Sun and zombie flick Fido play at the Globe opening night March 1.
