The Guam International Film Festival's (GIFF) informational session with two local talent recruiters from Pixar Animation Studios quickly sold out after going public on May 8.
Kim Diaz and Mana Denight are recruiters with Pixar's Talent and Outreach team. The animation studio is a subsidiary of Disney, and produced kids' classics such as "Toy Story," "Monsters Inc.," "Finding Nemo" and "The Incredibles," to name just a few.
The duo is scheduled to speak about their experiences growing up in Guam and the paths they took to land roles at Pixar, on May 19 at the Guam Museum.
"We know how excited you all were about this! Unfortunately, we have already reached full capacity and can no longer accept registrations," GIFF officials announced on Wednesday via Instagram. "We at GIFF strive to provide amazing opportunities such as this for our fellow filmmakers and artists. We hope you all understand."
Admission was made free for high school and college students. GIFF officials said in a press release that the organization was committed to entertainment, community and education.
"GIFF has been sustained because of its drive to engage and encourage the island's community, through various workshops, local film screenings and even courses," a press release states.
