Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs

David Hand’s sem­i­nal “Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs” and the 2012 Dis­ney short Paper­man will be screened at the 50th New York Film Fes­ti­val as part of the Mas­ter­works sec­tion, orga­niz­ers announced Monday.

Disney’s Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs (1937) is a time­less tale of a princess ban­ished by from the palace and then saved by seven unfor­get­table dwarves.

Noth­ing short of a mile­stone of cin­e­matic his­tory, Snow White was the first ani­mated fea­ture made in the United States. Its $1.4 mil­lion pro­duc­tion forced Walt Dis­ney to mort­gage his house to com­plete it.

Have a reunion with Happy, Sleepy, Sneezy, Grumpy, Dopey, Bash­ful and Doc, or intro­duce your kids to them for the very first time at this unmiss­able fam­ily event!

Snow White screens with the 2012 Dis­ney short Paper­man, directed by John Kahrs. It’s an inno­v­a­tive ani­ma­tion about a young New Yorker who relies on heart, imag­i­na­tion, a stack of papers — and a lit­tle luck — to change his des­tiny and win the girl of his dreams.

The addi­tion of the Eli­nor Bunin Munroe Film Cen­ter allows the Fes­ti­val to expand on areas of pro­gram­ming already part of the NYFF — such as the inclu­sion of restored or redis­cov­ered Mas­ter­works in the Fes­ti­val lineup,” the NYFF’s Richard Peña said in a statement.

Gen­eral pub­lic tick­ets for the 50th New York Film Fes­ti­val go on sale Sep­tem­ber 9. There will be a pre-sale tick­et­ing period for Film Soci­ety patrons and mem­bers prior to that date. Join the Film Soci­ety by August 29 to take advan­tage of this pri­or­ity period.

The 50th New York Film Fes­ti­val runs from Sep­tem­ber 28 until Octo­ber 14. For more infor­ma­tion on attend­ing the fes­ti­val, visit
