historic 1958

a while ago I found this picture in an older publication. it was taken 1958 during the film-festival in CANNES. an amazing document, most of the european ‘all time’ animation legends are there. I identified some of them but a lot are still missing. maybe someone can help me to identify who is left…

Terrific photo-what was the gathering for? Was animation celebrated at that years’ festival?

I think zagreb film won an award, that’s why there are so many artists from the zagreb studio on the picture.
no idea what it was for, maybe initiated by asifa just to remember the event. in the magazine or book where
I found the picture, there were all the signatures of the artists around the foto. maybe I should post that to.

Look in my book on Halas & Batchelor Cartoons, and most of the people are there. I will be back at home next week and have a look for you.
