The Irish Film & Television Academy (IFTA), and Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, Ireland, have announced details of a new event - In Conversation With... John Lasseter.


The Pixar and Disney bigwig has been easily the most invigorating thing to happen to animation in decades, and will take part in a chat with Ming The Merciless lookalike Paul Byrne - hopefully Lasseter manages to get a word in (joke... but seriously). Lasseter directed the first two Toy Story movies and also co-wrote and directed Cars 2 - out next week.

The event takes place Monday July 25th at Dublin's Cineworld Cinema. For more information contact IFTA on + 353 1 6624120.
