We’ve learned via the Walt Disney Animation Studios’ official Twitter feed that the new short film Get a Horse! is being screened this weekend at the prestigious Telluride Film Festival held annually in Telluride, Colorado. The 2013 festival runs August 29 – September 2, 2013.
It’s a great honor for Get a Horse! to be selected to screen at the festival. According to the Telluride Film Festival website:
“We show a handful of films and are very selective. The real prize in Telluride is to be accepted from hundreds of entries as one of approximately 25 shorts and 24 features that will be showcased at the Festival. A few short films will be paired with a feature. Others will be collected into one of the three short film programs.”
Get a Horse! has been paired at the festival with the new outer space thriller Gravity from Warner Bros. The short’s director Lauren MacMullan is also scheduled to make a presentation about the new (or as Disney has been calling it “never before seen”) short on Sunday, September 1 at the newly dedicated Werner Herzog Theater in Telluride.
We’ll keep you posted as we learn more. Get a Horse! will debut in U.S. theaters in front of Walt Disney Animation Studios’ upcoming feature film Frozen on November 27, 2013.
