Walt Disney Animation Studios (Wdas) debuted a newly restored digital print of the once-thought-lost 1928 Oswald the Lucky Rabbit animated short Hungry Hobos at the Telluride Film Festival on September 2, according to Dave Bossert, producer/creative director and head of special projects for Wdas. The film, which was found in a private film vault in England in 2011, was acquired by Disney that same year and has undergone extensive digital restoration. Hungry Hobos will debut in Telluride, Colorado as part of a special animation shorts program presented by leading film historian and restoration expert Serge Bromberg. Also on the program (Serge Bromberg's Retour De Flamme) was a sneak peek at Disney's newest animated short Paperman, which premiered at this year's Annecy International Animated Film Festival, generating excitement in the industry for its innovative hybrid use of computer animation and hand-drawn techniques.
