An Evening with Oscar nominated filmmaker Paul Fierlinger & award
 winning artist and screenwriter Sandra Fierlinger.
Featuring an on
stage conversation between the Fierlingers and 2012 Caldecott
honoree Patrick McDonnell (the renowned creator of the comic strip
Mutts)
, and a screening of their film, My Dog Tulip, a cartoon for adults
and the first animated feature ever to be entirely hand drawn and painted
utilizing paperless computer technology.

Animated dog movie: Those three little
words are enough to make parents shudder
in expectation of having to accompany their
kindergarten-age kids to a sentimental,
anthropomorphic
contrivance. But the
acclaimed, hand drawn My Dog Tulip is an
animated dog movie like no other and
decidedly NOT for children. Called “a stroke
of genius” by New York Magazine and a
“post Pixar miracle” by the New York Press,
My Dog Tulip has been described as
“Remarkable!” by the Los Angeles Times,
“wonderful and wise” by the Philadelphia
Inquirer
, “beautiful” by Movieline,
“marvelous” by the Wall Street Journal, and
“A triumph!” by the Boston Globe. Based on
J. R. Ackerley’s 1956 memoir, the movie
chronicles the author’s 15-year-relationship
with Queenie, a German shepherd (renamed
Tulip for the book and film), and features
 the voices of Christopher Plummer (as Ackerly), Isabella Rossellini and Lynn
Redgrave.
