CTN prides itself on sharing pre-release screenings whenever possible. In 2009 in it's first US screening guests saw "The Secret of the Kells" by the creators at Cartoon Saloon and "Waking Sleeping Beauty" by filmmaker and executive producer from Walt Disney Studios Don Hahn. In 2010 CTN carried on the tradition with the first US exclusive screening of "The Illusionist" directed by Sylvain Chomet from Django Films and "Tangled" from Walt Disney Animation. This is an exciting tradition the founders of the CTN animation eXpo want to continue year after year.
These screenings are limited seating and are open to CTNer General or VIP pass holders unless otherwise noted.
