ASIFA-East Award Winners

Fantaisie in Bubblewrap

The winners have been announced for America’s longest continually-running animation award–the 39th ASIFA-East Animation Festival. The top prize, Best in Show, went to Fantaisie in Bubblewrap, the promising debut of young filmmaker Arthur Metcalf, whose work has previously been profiled on the Brew. Other works that I was pleased to see recognized include Germans in the Woods by the Rauch brothers, A Letter to Colleen by Andy and Carolyn London, Compost by Visual Voice, and The Upstate Four by Fran Krause and Will Krause, the latter being one of the more impressive TV show pilots I’ve seen in a while.
