"Thank God for film archivist Dennis Nyback. If not for his encyclopedic knowledge of rare films and his tenacity for acquiring them, we would never have the privilege to view some astounding works of cinema." Kim Morgan

I love the Stuttgart Animation Festival for many reasons:
The location is great! It’s right downtown, next to a beautiful city center park, with easy access to the old city. The programming is fantastic, with great films, and filmmakers from around the world gather at the nearby festival tent to drink and talk about animation. But the best part is the audiences – they’re smart, appreciative, enthusiastic, and they pack the cinemas.
