Legendary film director Ken Russel is not the only one to be honoured by the Fantasia Festival this summer. Don Bluth and Gary Goldman, the creative driving force behind such animation masterpieces as THE SECRET OF NIHM, AN AMERICAN TAIL, THE LAND BEFORE TIME and ALL DOGS GO TO HEAVEN, will be awarded a prize in recognition of their illustrious careers.
After several years working with the Disney studios, Bluth and Goldman started their own independent animation studio in 1979. They have collaborated with such renowned filmmakers as Steven Spielberg and George Lucas, delved into the world of video games with the DRAGON’S LAIR series and are responsible for a dozen wonderfully imaginative feature films
To celebrate, Fantasia will be screening a 35mm version of the prehistoric classic THE LAND BEFORE TIME, a touching tale that has endeared a generation of movie enthusiasts. Fans will also get a chance to meet the filmmakers in person during a round table discussion on animation cinema.
