A quick reminder that The Last Belle will be making its Brazilian debut at the mighty Anima Mundi festival, Rio de Janeiro, on August 7th. Would love to make it there myself one day... For more details of the festival and the films click HERE!
And while I'm in festival mode, thanks to the people of the Maremetraggio International Short Film Festival who gave The Last Belle such a great reception. Writer Martina Farci, of Media Critica, wrote a nice article comparing and contrasting our film with the live-action film 'Cafe Regular, Cairo'. One film in live action, one in animation; one serious, one humorous; but she concludes that both "see in a different way what is most universal in the world: love." And another nice review from Letizia Rogolino, of News Cinema, who calls The Last Belle "a fun and topical masterpiece of animation..."
Thanks to everyone who has been so supportive!
