Earlier today, the folks at Pixar Blog posted a small photo of The Blue Umbrella logo (shown above). They informed us that the logo was presented in an official newsletter promoting the premiere of the new short at the Berlin film festival (festival runs from February 7-17, 2013). The newsletter also notes that Director, Saschka Unseld and producer Marc Greenberg will be available for interviews at the festival on February 12, 2013. This may mean that the short will also premiere on February 12 as well, but that has not official been noted yet.
The afternoon, Saschka also tweeted the official Facebook page for the short. (The Rainy City Tales 332 Twitter page, also run by Saschka also posted the notice.) There are additional The Blue Umbrella Facebook pages in existence so be sure to click here to link directly to the official page. It is also interesting to note that the Facebook page was originally created on July 2, 2012.
