Imagine a world where anything is possible and nothing is beyond the realm of your creativity. Computer-generated (CG) animation revolutionized the way we watch movies. It brought the world of cartoons and 3-D special effects to life with stunning realism. For filmmakers, it made storytelling a whole new adventure.

Central New York parents and children are invited to attend SYRFILMFEST’s fourth annual “Pixar: New Technologies in Animation” program on Saturday, May 1, featuring an exclusive sneak peak at Pixar’s upcoming film, followed by a question-and-answer session with Cynthia Slavens, post-production supervisor for Pixar, whose credits include “Ratatouille,” “Cars” and the winner of this year’s Academy Award for Best Animated Feature, “Up.”

The two-hour event will begin at 11 a.m. at The Palace Theatre, 2384 James St., Syracuse. Tickets—$5 for adults; free for those 17 and under—will be available at the door. To reserve tickets or for more information, contact KC Duggan at (315) 443-8826 or
