Born in New York City in 1960, Munro Ferguson took a very early interest in cartooning and film. In 1994, he joined the NFB English Program’s Animation Studio, where he wrote, directed and animated How Dinosaurs Learned to Fly (1995). He created Falling in Love Again, winner of the 2004 Genie Award for Best Animated Short, and June, an elegy for his close friend and mentor, artist Joyce June Wieland. June premiered at the Art Gallery of Ontario and was invited to numerous international festivals and exhibitions. Munro’s most recent film, Minotaur, is an abstract expression of the mythic hero’s journey towards death and back again, with original music by Kid Koala.
