Plot Summary

SNOWTIME! is an animated feature film in stereoscopic 3D for the entire family. It will be released in theatres in winter 2015-2016. It is based on the international award winning live action movie La Guerre des Tuques which was released to great acclaim thirty years ago and sold to over one hundred twenty-five countries and won 18 awards. To amuse themselves during the winter school break, the kids in a small village decide to have a massive snowball fight. Luke and Sophie, both 11 years old, become the “generals” of the opposing sides. Sophie, a newcomer to the village, and her cohort defend an elaborate snow fort against the assault of Luke’s horde. Whichever side occupies the fort at the end of the break, wins. But what starts out as pure youthful fun and enthusiasm deteriorates into a more serious conflict as Luke takes his role as leader more and more seriously. The contest is brought to an abrupt end when a tragedy takes place. Luke recognizes his role in the sad event. Joy is restored when all the children decide to attack the fort rather than each other and happily destroy every last bit of the snow fort. SNOWTIME! is an appealing comedy about hope and friendship. It explores the sometimes mercurial relations between friends during childhood, and the role that enthusiastic competition and energizing solidarity play in the lives of children. In addition, it examines the issue of conflict and the impact conflict can have on all those it touches, in a way that children can appreciate. Entertaining, imaginative and joyfully lucid, this romp through childhood is full of heart and humour, while giving young viewers much food for thought.
