This week Monsters University and The Blue Umbrella went abroad to the Annecy International Animation Film Festival. The festival has been taking place in the town of Annecy, France since it was created in 1960. Originally occurring every two years, the festival became an annual event in June of 1998. The festival is not only a competition but it also highlights various animation techniques with numerous screening and panel discussions.

Opening the Annecy International Animation Film Festival this year was Monsters University on June 10th. The festival also featured a Q&A session with Director Dan Scanlon and Producer Kori Rae.
After the screening one of our readers tweeted us his praise to the Monsters University team.

The Festival also featured Pixar's latest feature short, The Blue Umbrella. On hand for the team was Director Saschka Unseld and Producer Marc Greenberg. Twitter has been buzzing over the incredible technical accomplishments that are highlighted in this poetic love story.


Below is a short video (via YouTube) that captures a little of the atmosphere from the Monsters University screening at the festival, though the best part of the clip is when Dan Scanlon describes the message of film.



UPDATED June 14 at 3:00 PM EST - Annecy has uploaded a high-level overview video of the event with some reactions from attendees (ending is in French).
