Cronopios - Blender film - World Premiere


An Argentinean feature film, completely done in Blender, will be playing in theaters around the world!

Juan Pablo Bouza writes:

This week is the "official" World Premier of Cronopios & Famas, the 90 minutes Feature film we did with Blender and other open source programs here in Argentina.

The Blenderheads who participated in creating the movie are Claudio "malefico" Andaur, Guillermo Espertino, Iván Hoffmann, Pablo Lizardo, Manuel Pérez, Darío Tacco, David Teres, Álvaro Vidal and Juan Pablo Bouza. The movie is based on short stories by Julio Cortázar and it features the works of painters such as Luis Felipe Noé, Antonio Seguí and Carlos Alonso.

Here is a list of the places where it will be screening, I don't have much more information than this, so if the screening will take place in your city, try to contact your local theatre:
