The classic animation that poured from the Walt Disney Studio during the 1930s and 1940s defined the very history of animation. Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy and other Disney characters endure to this day and the way Disney made them move was a revelation to audiences of all ages.
LIAF is proud to be able to present an incredibly rare opportunity to experience this beautiful magic on the big screen. These films have been painstakingly restored to their full and original glory and most of them will be projected from 35mm prints.
Many thanks to Garth Burkhard and April Mcilroy at Walt Disney Studios.
