Animated short PARADE off to the Oscars

1 September 2016


Short animated film PARADE directed by Digna van der Put, has been selected by an independent committee of Dutch film professionals for Oscar® submission in the Animated Short Film category.

Jury Statement: "PARADE provides a timely but also timeless look at the parades of life and world history. The style and technique connect seamlessly with the theme. The viewer innocently joins the cheerful rhythm and ultimately experiences what parades can stand for. "

PARADE had its world premiere at the London International Animation Festival, last December. After that, the film was selected for several leading international festivals, such as the Brussels Short Film Festival (Belgium), Annecy International Animated Film Festival (France) and the Melbourne International Animation Festival (Australia). In autumn the film will be screened at Filmets Badalona Film Festival (Spain) and the Anima Mundi Festival (Brazil).

In PARADE six fanfare flute players explore the landscape of the uniform. A journey that does not go unscathed.

Digna van der Put (1980) is an independent filmmaker, with her studio based in Rotterdam (the Netherlands).She began her career as an art teacher but decided to specialize in animation. In 2009 she graduated from the Willem de Kooning Academy with the animated short SQUIRREL & ELEPHANT. After that she worked on major projects such as the animation feature films PIM & POM - The Great Adventure (2013) and HEINZ and URBANUS (2014).

PARADE is produced by Ton Crone from the Netherlands  Institute for Animation Film - NIAf. The film was realized with financial support of the Netherlands Film Fund.

EYE International organizes the Dutch short film selections, the qualifying run of PARADE in Los Angeles and oversees its submission to the Academy. On 24 January 2017 the Academy will announce the nominees in all categories, including those for Animated Short Film. The Oscars® will be presented on February 26, 2017.
