The 2014 Annecy International Animation Film Festival has wrapped up for the year. One of the many cool things that happened there was a presentation from Walt Disney Animation Studios. Artists discussed Disney’s upcoming short Feast and also their upcoming animated feature film Big Hero 6.
Boy and the World (O Menino e o Mundo) took home the Cristal Award for a Feature Film at the 2014 Annecy International Animation Film Festival. Directed by Brazilian artist Alê Abreu, the hand-drawn animated film tells the story of a fatherless boy who leaves his village “to discover a world dominated by animal machines and strange beings” and shows an interpretation of the problems of the world through the eyes of a child.
Walt Disney Animation Studios’ new short film Feast made its debut this week at the 2014 Annecy International Animation Film Festival. The six-minute short tells the story of “one man’s love life as seen through the eyes of his best friend and dog, Winston [a Boston Terrier], and revealed bite by bite through the meals they share.”
Pixar’s Pete Doctor made a presentation yesterday about his new film Inside Out at the 2014 Annecy International Animation Film Festival. From some of the various tweets coming from the festival, it sounds like a segment of the film was shown and a new logo for the film made its debut.
