Walt Disney Studio’s new animated feature, Bolt will be the opening night film at the first-ever 3DX: 3D film & entertainment technology festival, to be held in Singapore from 19 – 23 November. Walt Disney Studios is a leader in 3-D filmmaking and Mark Zoradi, president of Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures Group, will be delivering a premier presentation on 3-D and Disney’s upcoming slate. Disney will release 10 films in 3D in the next two years – including Bolt, the Jonas Brothers concert, Up, G-Force and Disney’s A Christmas Carol – following the tremendous success of Meet the Robinsons and Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds in Disney Digital 3-D this past year. The 3DX festival and forum will comprise a business forum and film festival including public screenings, festival based showings of newly released 3-D films, international speaker sessions, a gala red carpet reception and a special THR Intelligence trend report on the outlook of 3D for deployment in 2009 and beyond presented by Eric Mika, vice president of Nielsen Entertainment Group and publisher of THR. The festival will be produced by Chabin Partners of Los Angeles and hosted by the Media Development Authority of Singapore (MDA) with support from the Singapore Tourism Board and Singapore Economic Development Board.
