Academia Rossica’s Russian Film Festival held in London, England from October 30th to November 8th will include a screening of the 2005 animated short film SHERLOCK HOLMES AND DOCTOR WATSON. This charming animated film by creators Aleksandr Bubnov, Irina Kovtun and Zoya Trofimova has been making the YouTube rounds for a couple years since placing 3rd at the 2006 Open Russian Festival of Animated Film. Apparently a sequel is in the works, details and images, for those who read Russian, can be found at http://community.livejournal.com/holmes_2/
