A few pictures, not so many words.

Daily B&W – Free for all

English translation below

Tag zwei. Großartig wie ich es durchhalte, oder? Heute auf der Speisekarte: Eine Menschenmasse inmitten von Stuttgart. Alle friedlich und alle schauen gebannt in eine Richtung. Was ist also los? Das Internationale Trickfilmfestival in Stuttgart ist los. Und wie schon das Jahr davor wird ein Rahmenprogramm für Jeden geboten. Gratis werden kurze Animationsfilme auf einer großen Leinwand gezeigt und pünktlich um viertel nach Acht gibt es den obligatorischen Abendfilm. Hier wartet die Meute geschlossen auf ‘Rango’.

Stuttgart-DE Schlossplatz

Stuttgarter Schlossplatz

Day two and isn’t it awesome how good this whole thing works? On today’s menu there are people. In the middle of Stuttgart, but neither on strike nor fighting nor demonstrating. In fact, there is hardly any police there at all. But what happened? This picture was shot when the International Festival of Animated Film was hosted by Stuttgart this year. As the year before a huge screen was installed at the city’s Schlossplatz for everyone to sit in front. During the afternoons short animated films were shown. In the evening, just at prime time, the crowd could watch an animated feature film. On this day, everybody waited for ‘Rango’ to start.

    • thanks, Lucy. It always is great, especially since we were lucky with the wheather for the last two years. Sunshine, festival atmosphere and movies for free … quite nice and relaxing 🙂
