AUDIENCES can experience Disney’s Frankenweenie, directed by acclaimed filmmaker Tim Burton, first hand, as the Art of Frankenweenie Exhibition arrives at the Festival Village at South Bank Centre, London from October 17, hosted by the BFI London Film Festival in partnership with American Express.

Frankenweenie opens the 56th BFI London Film Festival on October 10 and is released nationwide by Walt Disney Studios on October 17.

The Art of Frankenweenie Exhibition, supported by American Express, will be free to the public when it runs from October 17 to 21.

The Exhibition captures the magic of the filmmaking process and gives audiences an exclusive glimpse into the stop-motion animation process brought to life by visionary filmmaker Tim Burton.

From original sketches drawn by Burton, to extensive props, sets and puppets, the exhibition showcases the artistic detail and vision that has gone into bringing this heartwarming tale to the big screen in 2012’s most highly anticipated animated movie.

The Art of Frankenweenie Exhibition delves into the world of a boy who, inspired by science and the love of his dog, brings his beloved pet back from the dead.

Powered by RealD, the industry’s brightest 3D screening technology, the Exhibition also includes 3D footage of Frankenweenie in a unique RealD visual experience.
