This week has been very eventful. First, we had the pleasure to hear that our film won the award for best animated film at the Harlem festival. We are especially thrilled since that’s our very first “first prize”. Many thanks to the judges, and sorry we couldn’t make it in person!

New website

posted in: Festivals | 0

Hey everyone!

As you can see, we did a major update to our website, since it was originally meant as a production blog and it didn’t really fit now that the film is over. Our teaser is now in the forefront and all of the information on the film is at direct reach, including the complete list of official selections and the upcoming festivals in the new PRESS page. We hope you’ll like it!

There was a bunch of new selections lately and we’ve even been nominated for Best Short Film for the Animago Award! The final results should be announced on October 14, but in the meantime you can consult the following link to see what other films were nominated :

Up next : find a way to screen our film in a Los Angeles theatre for three consecutive days before September 30th, so the film can become eligible for the Oscars. Indeed, it’s now the only way we have left since we didn’t get the chance to win a first prize in a major festival until now.

We’ll keep you updated!
