UPDATED: The 2014 Annecy Film Festival has ended, read our summary review of the Inside Out event with photos.
Attendees of the 2014 Annecy Film Festival will be treated to an ‘inside’ look into Pixar’s next feature film, Inside Out (scheduled for a theatrical debut June 15, 2015). The festival has been taking place in the town of Annecy, France since it was created in 1960 and was originally held every two years until it became an annual event in June of 1998. The festival is not only a competition, but it also highlights various animation techniques with numerous screening and panel discussions.
Last year, Monsters University opened the festival to eager audiences along with screenings of The Blue Umbrella which left the crowd in wonderment. This year should continue the amazement as a first glimpse into Pixar’s highly anticipated film Inside Out will surely astonish guests and create quite the buzz on June 10, 2014, at 12:30 PM CEST (or 6:30 PM EST). Below is the excerpt from the 2014 Annecy Film Festival Program.
