The festival began on Wednesday with the premiere of Up. I could have gone to one of the two red carpet screenings but I literally would have had to put on my fancy clothes and run to the Palais. That just wasn’t going to happen. Besides I’d rather save my red carpet moment for something other than Up.
As promised here are pictures from the opening day. I ended up not taking that many because I was working most of the day. But two are always better than none.
As you can see, the promotional material for the film was really adorable. Balloons were being handed out left and rights. Nearly everyone got one and it was especially cute to see little kids running around with their Up balloons.
