THE EMOJI MOVIE unlocks the never-before-seen secret world inside your smartphone. Hidden within the messaging app is Textopolis, a bustling city where all your favorite emojis live, hoping to be selected by the phone’s user. In this world, each emoji has only one facial expression – except for Gene, who was born without a filter and is bursting with multiple expressions. Determined to become “normal” like the other emojis, Gene enlists the help of his best friend, Hi-5 and the notorious code breaker emoji Jailbreak. Together, they embark on an epic “app-venture” through the phone apps, each its own wild and fun world, to find the Code that will fix Gene.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Director/Co-writer Tony Leondis, Producer Michelle Raimo and Head of Story Mark Sperber, moderated by Frank Gladstone.
