Brisbane Festival and Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art present

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937)

11 - 18 Sep
Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA)

Walt Disney’s first great love letter to the Brothers Grimm was described at the time as ‘Disney’s Folly’. In 2008, the American Film Institute named it the greatest American animated film of all time.


Its influence has been deep. It was the first feature-length animated film in the United States and the first American film to have a soundtrack album. With a staggering two million illustrations, it became the template for all the great animated films that followed. Its innovative use of story, colour, animation, sound, direction and background later inspired directors like Federico Fellini and Orson Welles.

The story of Snow White is a Festival Focus, so why not also take a look at the silent film that inspired Disney as a boy, as well as two brilliant stage versions - Ballet Preljocaj’s lush, full-length story ballet, and the new bloody reimagining from La Boite and Opera Queensland.


Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is part of the Festival Focus. Click here to take part in the Festival Conversation about Snow White and The Little Mermaid.
