Want to go to the world premiere of “Persistence of Vision” for free?
The documentary follows the 30-year quest of animator Richard Williams to make his masterpiece, The Thief and the Cobbler — perhaps the greatest animated film never made.
Sponsor The Snipe, Vancouver’s news source for movies, music, comics and more, has two pairs of tickets to give away to the world premiere Thursday, October 4 at this year’s Vancouver International Film Festival.
Best known for the animated sequences of Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Canadian-born British animator Williams saw the film wrested from his control and savagely recut.
Kevin Schreck’s documentary pairs unreleased scenes from Williams’ virtuoso fairytale with horror stories of creativity falling prey to commerce.
To enter to win one of two pairs of tickets to the October 4 premiere at 6 p.m. at Granville Cinemas, let the online magazine know your favorite animated feature or cartoon of all time at www.thesnipenews.com/the-latest/persistence-of-vision-movie-viff/. The draw will be made at 9 a.m. PST on Wednesday, October 3.
