The Italian premiere of Illumination and Universal Pictures’ upcoming animated feature “Migration” rounds out the lineup for this year’s VIEW Conference in Turin, Italy. The conference, which brings together top industry professionals, thought leaders and enthusiasts to celebrate the latest achievements in animation, VFX and games, runs from Oct. 15 through Oct. 20.
“Migration” director Benjamin Renner will offer a presentation on the making of the film, which follows the Mallard family on a surprising journey outside of their New England home. Lending their voices to the project are Kumail Nanjiani, Elizabeth Banks, Awkwafina, Carol Kane and Danny DeVito. The film opens in the U.S. on Dec. 22.
“It is an honor to welcome Benjamin Renner to our live stage at VIEW Conference 2023,” says conference director Maria Elena Gutierrez. “This Italian premiere event will give our global audience an exclusive preview of this highly anticipated movie, which enjoys its theatrical release this coming holiday season. ‘Migration’ looks incredible, and I cannot wait to hear what Benjamin has to say about the creative journey he went on to bring it to the screen.”
Renner is among a number of speakers scheduled to appear in person at the conference, which in recent years has been a hybrid of in-person and virtual sessions. Among those appearing in person are Nick Bruno and Troy Quane, directors of the Netflix animated film “Nimona,” who will be joined by ND Stevenson, the creator of the graphic novel upon which the film is based. Joaquim Dos Santos, who directed “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse” along with Kemp Powers and Justin K. Thompson, will also be presenting.
Other speakers include Pixar vice president and creative director Peter Sohn, who will be talking about his animated feature “Elemental”; writer-director Henry Selick, known for his stop-motion films “Coraline,” “The Nightmare Before Christmas” and last year’s “Wendell & Wild”; Lucasfilm VP and executive creative director Doug Chiang, discussing his work overseeing designs for the “Star Wars” franchise across films, theme parks, games and new media; and Industrial Light & Magic animation supervisor Hal Hickel, who will talk about his work on the Disney+ series “The Mandalorian.” These are just a few of the industry heavyweights set to appear at the weeklong event, which features speakers, presentations, workshops and masterclasses.
