Tara Schorr brought this to our attention, it seems we had some fine representation and acknowledgement at the recent Palm Springs International Shortfest. They have a variety of categories, but we swept Best Animated Short. You can find the press release here.
Here are the pertinent details:
BEST ANIMATION SHORT:
First Place ($2,000) – The Lost Town of Switez (Poland/Canada), Kamil Polak
A spectacularly animated story about a traveler whose journey is diverted when his carriage driver falls asleep. An epic tale across wild lands and towns that glimmer like jewels, about a man who becomes a hero.
Second Place ($500) – Interregnum (Canada), Nick Fox-Gieg
Congrats to Kamil Polak and Nick Fox-Gieg.
Well, sorta Canadian. I don’t know Kamil’s story, but Nick’s actually originally from the States, but he works and lives in Toronto, so we’ll claim him as our own.
I think you can safely say we’re ALL immigrants in Canada(haha)
