And the winners are …
Great day at Hebden Bridge Picture House, watching the animation films on a full-size screen with an appreciative audience. Well done to all the filmmakers in the competition.
LSD ABC by Laura Sicouri & Kadavre Exquis (France)
Winner, Best Film, Uncanny Valley Animation Festival 2013 AND Winner, Audience Choice, Uncanny Valley 2013.
Stylish animation with a cool, retro-inspired look and a wicked sense of humour. Clear winner for the judges and the audience!
Another clear Winner with the judges. Selected for the strength of its narrative, beautifully evoked through a perfect marriage of storytelling and visuals – which looked stunning on a big screen.
Again, a clear Winner and the judges third choice. This stop motion animation scored highly for its creativity and skill.
This intriguing, beautifully crafted film was awarded a Special Commendation by the judges – see if you can work out how Shizuko Tabata achieved this effect (it took us a while).
