Bear Story wins an Academy Award!

We were pretty chuffed when Chilean film 'Bear Story' won the Academy Award for Best Animated Short at this year's ceremony! Beating a bunch of higher profile films, including one from Pixar, 'Bear Story' not only surprised many pundits but also garnered Chile with its first ever Academy Award.

Exactly twelve months ago our Kids Jury got together, viewed every film in our 2015-2016 program and awarded 'Bear Story' our own Best International Film prize. We're pretty proud to say our Kids Jury were well ahead of the game in seeing the film's quality ahead of nearly everyone else back then.

This also means that our 2015-2016 program contained two consecutive Oscar winning films - Mr Hublot, Best Animated Short winner in 2014, and Bear Story, Best Animated Short winner in 2015!

I wonder which film from our new crop of titles will make headlines over the next year?
