Annecy 2009

Annecy-The trademark Prison



Ari and Ed, Directors

Dear Blog,
Im in france at the moment to Support our film- The Cat Piano at the worlds leading animation festival- Annecy. Needless to say, the experience is amazing.

There is about 7000 people attending the festival which is set in the alps about 4 hours train from Paris. the town it self is beautiful, Very old french/swiss buildings, winding streets, and pressed against a turquoise blue lake. The atmosphere is incredible here. I cant imagine anything better- thousands of friendly, like minded people, mind blowing scenery and the worlds most cutting edge films.

Im just about to start my third day of the festival. The highlights so far have been seeing the european premiers of Pixars film Partly Cloudy and Henry Sellicks new masterpiece Coroline.
This internet cafe is shoddy, so its hard to share photos. hopefully i will find a better one!
Until then,
