“Kilkenny Animated is a brand new festival of visual storytelling, hosted by double-Oscar nominated Kilkenny animation studio, Cartoon Saloon and produced by Naoise Nunn and local festivals and events company Schweppe Curtis Nunn.
The festival will celebrate the creativity and craft of the many aspects of animation, cartoons and illustration set among Kilkenny’s medieval streets and slipways. This is all against the background of the huge success of Cartoon Saloon, established nearly 20 years ago by Tomm Moore, Paul Young and recent Golden Globe nominee, Nora Twomey. The studio has been nominated for best animated feature Oscars for Secret of Kells and Song of the Sea and there is growing expectation that Nora Twomey’s The Breadwinner may be named as the studio’s third Academy Award nominee when nominations are announced on January 23.”
