And the winner is… "Atormentada"
(I posted this on the short film’s production blog a few days ago, but now I’m posting it here).
The Ícaro film and video Festival, in its 12° edition was held in Guatemala, and its the most important and most prestigious festival in Central America. El Salvador submitted 59 works into different categories, and only two managed to win the great prize. One of them is our short film “Atormentada” (“Tormented”), selected by the jury as the Best Animation in the contest.
Unfortunately none of team members was able to travel to Guatemala. However, the statue was received by the Ambassador of El Salvador: Silvio Mora Mora, who was there representing the director.
In the animation category there were 4 short films from Costa Rica, 3 from El Salvador, 2 from Guatemala, and 1 from Nicaragua.
The jury nominated 3 finalists: 2 shorts from Costa Rica and ours, selecting “Atormentada” as the winner.
We’reextremely proud of our work and also happy for this victory.
The project was made possible thanks to the Spanish Agency of International Cooperation, Escuela de Comunicaciones Mónica Herrera, Pro-Art and all the members of the production team.
So now… to celebrate!!
And just in case you want to take a look at the award…
I just wanted to thank the people from Escuela de Comunicaciones Mónica Herrera, the team members, friends and a very special someone for helping making this film possible. This award goes not only to me but to them as well.
(And I know those last words sound very “well that’s the kind of thing you HAVE to say to keep people happy but that’s not why I wrote it :p)
