Innovation and originality has to be the message of our Golden Pencil Award-winning films this year. Each one of our 3 award winners were very different in their approaches as it seemed only right to honor their explorations along new avenues of expression. Consequently, we congratulate our winning films and filmmakers... 'BEGONE DULL CARE' by Paul Johnson (Music-based animation), 'PARADE DE SATIE" by Koji Yamamura (2D Animation) and "ICKY" by Parastoo Cardgar (Student animation). A special 'AIE student animation' Golden Pencil was awarded to 'SCAVENGER' by Chyann Hughes. So 'bravo' one and all - and thanks to all the filmmakers and vendors who were part out our festival this time around. It was a true pleasure to view all of your works. Keep on animating folks - we hope to see more of your work in the future!
AND THAT'S A WRAP FOR 2017 FOLKS! :)
