Annecy 2011 Daily Coverage: Day 2

Festival season!

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

Still at the scene of the crime, we continue to cover the annual animation festival in Annecy, France. Day 2, tuesday, is the day when most of our friends from the business has landed. It’s great to see those familiar faces, and are looking forward to spending a lot of time with them in the next few days.

Long film in competition: The Rabbi’s cat (Le Chat du Rabbin):

Origin: France.
Length: 90m
Directed by Antoine Delesvaux & Joann Sfar.

I also managed to squeeze in a feature film today. The Rabbi’s cat turned out to be a really pleasant surprise. I doubt it will get a major international release, so make sure you look for the Blu-ray/DVD later this year.

My verdict: * * * * * * * 7 stars.

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