As part of After School Special: The 2016 School of Visual Arts Alumni Film & Animation Festival, we are pleased to present a special free 25th anniversary screening of Disney's Beauty and the Beast (1991), followed by a Skype Q&A with renowned animator Tom Sito (BFA 1977 Animation). Preceded by the animated short Taking the Plunge by Thaddaeus Andreades, Elizabeth Ku-Herrero, Nicholas Manfredi, and Marie Raoult (BFA 2015 Computer Art, Computer Animation and Visual Effects alumni). The Q&A will be moderated by current SVA student Branko Kljajic (BFA Animation 2017).
Synopsis: Belle, whose father is imprisoned by the Beast, offers herself instead, unaware her captor is an echanted prince.
