We just received wonderful news from Sapporo:
“The Little Boy and The Beast” was awarded for the Best Children Short and the half hour special we did with Magic Light pictures for the BBC “The Gruffalo” received the Best Children Choice Award Silver!

We are extremely honoured and happy for both the awards and would like to give our thanks to the festival and the juries.

Unfortunately, we hadn’t got the chance to attend this year’s Animadrid Festival. We thank the jury for awarding “The Little Boy and the Beast” as the Mejor Cortometraje Infantil.

Our short “The Little Boy and the Beast” was also awarded at the KROK Festival as the Best Film for Children and received a Special Distinction in the Short Film Competition at CICDAF in China. In Amsterdam at the KLIK Festival the short got an honourable mention, it was runner up at the Erich-Kästner-Award in Berlin.
