I am very pleased to announce that Floyd the Android recieved a Special Jury Recognition Award at the Aspen Shortsfest.
3300 films submitted, 80 films selected, 6 Special Jury Recognition Awards given.
I had a wonderful time at the festival, and want to thank the organizers, judges and volunteers. I met quite a few film makers, and enjoyed many fantastic films.
Recognized as one of the world's "50 Leading Film Festivals" by IndieWIRE, Aspen Shortsfest is one of the world's premier international short film and video showcases for the trend-setting art form: the short. This Oscar-qualifying international competition offers a lively, thought-provoking, and humorous selection of drama, comedy, animation and documentary - all at 40 minutes or less.
Floyd the Android will show next April in Taiwan, at the International Children's Film Festival.
Currently, the website is only in Chinese.
Today I received a catalog from "Cartoon Club", a comics and animation festival in Rimini, Italy. I had sent them a DVD of Floyd the Android months ago, and they included him in their 27th festival back in July. Sorry I didn't know about it sooner.
Floyd the Android has won a prize at the KROK International Animated Films Festival.
- Prize in the category – to TV series “Floyd the Android”, director Jonathan Lyons (USA).
I'll take it. Thank you very much judges!
Floyd the Android will show at the Chicago International Children's Film Festival this October.
