Pixar at the RiverRun International Film Festival

Just a heads up to my fellow North Carolina residents out there. Pixar will be making a presentation at this year's RiverRun International Film Festival next week, right here in my own backyard of Winston-Salem.

From RiverRun's official website:

Don’t miss a very special behind-the-scenes look at Pixar Animation Studios, the company responsible for some of the most popular animated films of the last 20 years, including Toy Story, Monsters, Inc. and Finding Nemo. During this panel discussion and screening, visiting Pixar artists will examine the magic behind the Oscar-nominated Cars, share film clips from the Pixar vaults and discuss the studio’s upcoming feature, Ratatouille.

The Pixar presentation is slated for Saturday, April 21 at 7:30 PM at the Stevens Center in downtown Winston-Salem. There will also be an Animation panel discussion earlier that day at 12:30 PM at the NC School of the Arts. It will feature industry professionals and veteran animators from the top studios Blue Sky, Pixar, Rhythm & Hue, Walt Disney Feature Animation and the Winston-Salem-based Out of Our Minds Animation Studios.
