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.
