Animation Is Film, Said The Festival

It may not seem like we need to have a three-day festival in Hollywood celebrating animation as cinema with a capital C. But if that was the case, I would not have spent the weekend with my girls in Hollywood at the Animation Is Film festival, watching stunning animated cinema and interviewing talented directors, including one who is likely going to fly home to Ireland next year with an Oscar or three under her arm, partially thanks to Angelina Jolie, who also attended. Details later, pictures and tweets now.
