Workshops held at SICFF 2018 mark Disney’s 95th anniversary

On the 95th anniversary of Disney, the ongoing Sharjah International Children’s Film Festival (SICFF) conducted two Disney-related sessions. One session was a workshop titled, ‘Disney’s A Wrinkle in Time,’ with Sebastian Reichhold, Effects Technical Director at One of Us, and the second was a panel discussion with Brian Ferguson, Animator at DePaul University in the U.S., titled ‘Disney between past and present.’

Sebastian Reichhold’s workshop explored the post-production journey in Disney’s recent film, A Wrinkle in Time. Students from Fujairah Women’s College commuted between emirates to attend his workshop and learn the art of animation. Sebastian’s presentation showcased the process of animation from development stage, referencing stage, to the final product.

On the third day of SICFF, Brian Ferguson shared his knowledge at the panel discussion titled: ‘Disney between past and present.’ He led the audience from the conceptualisation stage into the developmental stage transitioning into the final product, an animated movie.

The sixth edition of Sharjah International Children’s Film Festival (SICFF 2018) organised by FUNN Establishment – Sharjah Media Arts for Youth and Children, is taking place from October 14-19. All the films will be screened at Al Jawaher Reception & Convention Centre and Zero 6 Mall, Al Majaz Waterfront, Al Zora and Last Exit in Al Khawaneej, Dubai.
