A big THANK YOU to all our supporters and donors of Paper City. We’re happy to announce we raised just over 2.4 million Yen on the Japanese Crowdfunding site Campfire, an incredible effort given COVID-19. We reached 60% of our crowdfunding target, which is fantastic, but not quite enough. If anyone missed out and wants to donate in the coming months, please use the contact form to email me, or donate in Australian dollars via our page on the Documentary Australia Foundation site.
Wow! We’re having a pretty amazing festival run – we’ve won 30 awards, honours & distinctions so far! Most recently we won Best International Animated Short at the 2016 Animation Chico International film festival (USA) in December 2016.
We’ve screened at some great festivals like the BFI London Film Festival (UK), the Warsaw Film Festival (Poland) and the Hamptons International Film Festival (USA), Tribeca Film Festival (USA), Animatricks Animation Festival (Helsinki), Palm Springs International ShortFest (USA), Sitges Internacional Cinema de Fantastique (Spain), Santa Barbara International Film Festival (USA), Golden Kuker-Sofia International Animation Film Festival (Bulgaria), Aspen Shortsfest (USA) and Flickerfest International Short Film Festival (Australia) to name just a few.
Director Mikey Hill and I are thrilled to announce that our Screen Australia funded short animated film The Orchestra will have its world premiere screening at the Sydney Film Festival on 13th & 14th June as part of the Dendy Awards.
