The Red Turtle
Along with a lengthy history in comics and cinema, France also has a rich history in animation which is being celebrated at the FIAF (French Institute: Alliance Francaise). Held at Florence Gould Hall (55 East 59th St., NY, NY), and running February 2 - 4, 2018, the Animation First: New York’s French Animation Festival features award-winning films, shorts, virtual reality, interactive workshops, panel discussions and more.
From the press release:
“Special screenings and events for all ages put you in the front seat of 3D animation, works in process, interactive workshops on drawing and sound effects, gaming demonstrations, and panel discussions with leading artists and studio executives.’
On Saturday, the festival’s Guest of Honor, Michael Dudok de Wit, acclaimed director of The Red Turtle, will speak about the creation of the Oscar-nominated film from its beginnings in Japan at the celebrated Studio Ghibli through production in Angouleme, France.”
