It’s that time of year again when the movie world spotlight shifts from the West Coast of America to a small town on the French Riviera. The 68th International Cannes Film Festival kicks off on Wednesday and runs until May 24. As always with Cannes, it’s as much about the parties and being ‘seen’ as it is about the films themselves.
The new Shaun The Sheep movie has been selected to screen as part of the Children’s Strand at the Sundance Film Festival in January.
The screening will mark the film’s US debut and it’s rare to see a British animation picked for the festival founded by Robert Redford.
I love the idea of such a British film playing in the snowy depths of Utah to bemused Hollywood execs.
Meanwhile a new poster for the film has been released – as you can see above.
The Shaun the Sheep Movie will be in UK cinemas on February 6.
