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.
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.
I was present to receive the award.
