We're all EXCITED for the start of the Annecy International Animation Film Festival today!
Darragh O'Connell will be heading over tomorrow to cheer on the Octonauts which has been selected for the Official Competition alongside 29 other shows including Kavaleer's Wildernuts!
The nominated episode - The Octonauts and the Mariana Trench Adventure - is an episode directed by Nicky Phelan. You can check out Nicky's blog post on the Making-Of here!
Irish animation is receiving a great nod again this year with the screening of multi award-winning ‘The Missing Scarf’, directed and animated by Eoin Duffy and Cartoon Saloon will be giving a presentation on their next feature, the highly anticipated ‘Song of the Sea’. They will also be launching their upcoming book, ‘Designing ‘The Secret of Kells’’.
So there will be plenty to keep an eye out for!
Are you heading off to Annecy this year? What are you looking forward to most?
