Sunday, February 7th, 2021

Hallelujah!!! We have just heard that our latest film Affairs of the Art has won the Best International Animation Award at the Clermont Ferrand Short Film Festival in France. Phew!! We would like to give a huge thank you to the Jury and all our dedicated and talented production team at Beryl Productions and all those who have helped and encouraged us with the film over the last 5 years (and more!) including the real Beryl, actress Menna Trussler and Michael Fukushima and all the staff at the NFB in Canada. It’s been a long and hard journey not helped by the dreaded Covid pandemic which has prevented us all from actually having the ultimate experience of seeing our films screened in cinemas at Festivals and meeting in person all our friends from all over the world. A massive round of applause to the devoted staff of all those Festivals who have, quite miraculously, managed to organize Virtual Online Festivals with great skill and dexterity so that our films are still able to reach audiences universally. We salute you all.
