Great to be part of Moving Art festival in Ålesund 4- 7 march. There was a art-walk around town where all the works was presented. It was a really atmospheric evening, and lovely to see the film screened on a building, outside. The film was also screened with sound inside Torghallen. A huge thanks to the artist at Aggregat kunstfelleskap for inviting the film to the festival and this really special event!

Eternal Hunting Grounds received a “Special mention” at Leeds International Filmfestival! Eternal Hunting Grounds (Elin Grimstad, Estonia, Norway) “A completely unique and captivating film that created a beautiful and macabre atmosphere. We liked how it explored how children might perceive and engage with ideas beyond the grave.” thankyouthankyouthankyou!
So happy to take part in Animated Dreams Festival ! In the program MADE IN ESTONIA, a collection of new Estonian animated short films, clearly show that this is still the case. The programme is characterised by the extreme diversity of the films, both in content and style. This is one of the important factors of Estonian animation – everyone follows their own path, and there is no such thing as a unified school, which could result in clichéd work.
The World Animation Competition is one of the most popular competitions of Short Film City and aims to showcase some of the best and most sought-after animated short films from around the world. And this year is no exception! In the first programme of the competition we take you deep into the forest with Norway’s The Eternal Hunting Grounds …
Eternal Hunting Grounds was awarded THE GOLDEN DOVE for best animated short at DOK Leipzig 2016! A wonderful surprise and a great honour! Thank you DOK Leipzig for inviting the film to take part in the prestigious festival and thank you very much to the jury . This honourable award is for everyone that has been involved in the making of the film. ❤ As DOK Leipzig is an an Oscar– qualifying festival, Eternal Hunting Grounds is now eligible for the nominations for the Academy Awards.
Jury Statement The jury very much enjoyed the idea behind this film, which is about two very imaginative children exploring their world and the meaning of death. We felt that the delightful design and the animation style matched the subject matter beautifully.
We are so excited and happy to announce that Eternal Hunting Grounds will have the international premiere at Lepzig DOK festival in November this year!
The film will have three screenings during the festival and is in the international competition program. Elin is attending the festival, hope to see you there too!
