Palm Springs International Shortfest picks Canadians for best animated shorts

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:

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)
