Annecy 2011 Daily Coverage: Day 1

Jun 07

Festival season!

The Annecy 2011 daily coverage is presented by Erlend Dal Sakshaug.

It’s summer, it’s 2011 and it’s once again the annual Annecy festival in France. You may not be there, but the ACP-crew is. So again, we are your only “live” coverage source of the festival. We will be summing up the program every day, starting monday and ending  saturday, so make sure you sync that <insert gadget brandname here> at least once a day.

Adventures in Plymptoons:

Alexia Anastasio’s documentary on Pill Plympton’s life and work is funny, informative, fast, full of action and maybe 20 minutes too long. Still, very enjoyable!

That’s it for today. See you all tomorrow, and remember to subscribe in iTunes!
