A Town Called Panic: Double Fun
Films by Stéphane Aubier and Vincent Patar
Belgium, 60 min

Take another trip to A Town Called Panic, with two award-winning new specials from the directors of the zany feature film and the Academy Award®-nominated Ernest & Celestine, in theaters on September 24 for one day only!

With disarming wit and hilarious visuals, A Town Called Panic: Double Fun revels in the simple setup of three plasticine toys sent on increasingly surreal and freewheeling adventures. Cowboy and Indian are always up to some harebrained scheme, with Horse left to clean up the mess. In Christmas Panic, their out-of-control antics lead Horse to call Santa and cancel the presents. But the boys figure they can still save Christmas… if they break into their neighbor’s house to steal his yule log! In Back to School Panic, a class assignment yields a special prize, but only Pig knows the answer. Cowboy and Indian use a special shrinking potion to sneak into Pig’s brain, where they discover a sodium-packed world of pig cops riding in bacon cars and sausage cycles.

These new short films continue the brilliant, over-the-top visual inventiveness that has given the series a dedicated cult following, with a classic slapstick comedy sensibility that is perfect for all ages. This special Arthouse Theater Day release continues with the fun with an intermission featuring two classic A Town Called Panic shorts, Lisa & Jan and Cow-Hulk, where ill-behaved European backpackers and an alien microbe cause even more mayhem!

See the list of participating theaters below. Many theaters will be offering special giveaways from the film for the first 20 attendees at each location, so check with your local theater for details!
