OH WILLY best film at Fantoche

10 September 2012

Animated short film OH WILLY, directed by Emma De Swaef and Marc James Roels, was awarded Best Film at the Fantoch International Animation Film Festival in Baden, Switzerland. The festival took place 4-9 September 2012. The prize was CHF 7000.   

Jury commentary: We all agreed very quickly. We were impressed with the exceptional sense of rhythm full of twists and surprises, with the strong visuals that are coherent and reinforce the content, with the precision of the sound and with a story that touched us with it's simple and direct way of talking about the human condition. A film that convinced us as a whole.

The film is produced by Beast Animation (BE), Vivement Lundi (FR), Polaris (FR) and il Luster (NL). OH WILLY was previously selected for the International Competition of the International Short Film Festival Clermont-Ferrand, 27 January - 4 February, 2012
