Australian Success in Annecy!
The 34th edition celebrating the Festival’s 50th anniversary came to a successful close as the winners for 2010 were announced last night!:
And taking home The Annecy Crystal for Best Short Film is The Lost Thing by Andrew Ruhemann & Shaun Tan!
The Lost Thing voiced by Tim Minchin was produced by Passion Pictures Australia with financing from Screen Australia. The short is based on the books by multi-award winning Australian author and artist, Shaun Tan. This is an amazing award for the film and a great recognition of Australian talent as it is only the 2nd short film to have won the Crystal after The Mysterious Geographic Explorations of Jasper Morello by Anthony Lucas, in 2005.
