We’re excited about this year’s films, and we’ll be posting a full lineup next week.
But in the meantime, get a sneak peek at our first flyer!
We’re excited to announce a special PRE-RELEASE SCREENING of SONG OF THE SEA on MARCH 8TH, 2015 at 2pm at the MANSHIP THEATRE in downtown Baton Rouge!
“From the creators of the Academy Award®-nominated The Secret of Kells comes a breathtakingly gorgeous, hand-drawn masterpiece.
Directed by Tomm Moore
Written by Will Collins and Tomm Moore
Starring Brendan Gleeson, Fionnula Flanagan, and David Rawle
Based on the Irish legend of the Selkies, Song of the Sea tells the story of the last seal-child, Saoirse, and her brother Ben, who go on an epic journey to save the world of magic and discover the secrets of their past. Pursued by the owl witch Macha and a host of ancient and mythical creatures, Saoirse and Ben race against time to awaken Saoirse’s powers and keep the spirit world from disappearing forever. As enthralling for adults as it is for children young and old, Song of the Sea is a wonder of magical storytelling and visual splendor that is destined to become a classic.”
93 minutes, Rated PG

This was definitely the strongest lineup of shorts we’ve ever had, and don’t know how we’re going to top them in 2015!
