Update: This is Where We Live will be shown in competition at Prix Ars Electronica 2009 September 3 – 8, 2009, Linz, Austria. More than 500 films, VFX, advertising spots, etc. were submitted to the 2009 Prix Ars Electronica for prize consideration by the juries. This 2009 Prix Ars Electronica Animation Festival will showcase a “best of” selection from this year’s competition and a curated program compiled especially for the festival, among others the animation show by Japan Media Arts Festival Tokyo.
The guys from Asylum Films are just back from Annecy, the home of the world’s foremost animation festival. The 25th Estate film they made for us was part of the official selection, narrowly missing out in the Advertising Films Section to the BBC’s flying penguins iPlayer ad.
The film’s already won the Imagine Magazine Award for “Innovation in Animation” at FMX 09 in Germany, and the award for Best Animated Commercial at Stoke Your Fires, as well as screening at festivals and conferences in Belgium, Norway, America, Australia and round the UK.
Its next outing is as part of the official selection for the Soho Shorts festival, and it’s showing at the ICA on July 23rd and 26th, if you fancy seeing it on a big screen, alongside a whole load of other fascinating short films.
Of course, you can watch it here, now – along with 248,000 other people (and counting)…
