The Irish Film & Television Academy (IFTA), with thanks to Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, Ireland, is delighted to announce details of our latest event – In Conversation With… John Lasseter.

The two-time Academy Award®-winning writer/director/producer John Lasseter (Toy Story, A Bugs Life, Cars) will be the subject of IFTA’s next In Conversation With… event on Monday 25th of July 2011.

Also featured at this Animation in Focus will be a special screening of John Lasseter’s latest animated film Cars 2, which he directed and wrote – a follow up to his 2006 Golden Globe winning feature Cars.

Denise Ream, producer of Cars 2 and associate producer of Disney/Pixar’s Oscar winning feature animation Up, will also take part in the Q&A.

It is with great pleasure that we welcome John Lasseter to Ireland for this exclusive evening with IFTA Members. John is one of the world’s leading talents in animated storytelling and, since his debut feature film Toy Story in 1995, John’s influence and inspiration on the world of animation has been immeasurable.

IFTA Academy Members will share a rare opportunity to listen to and engage in a discussion with John about his incredible career experiences working in animation.
