    I won in category best Azerbaijani short animation in 2020. It was a very hard year for this festival, because of COVID-19 AND the Karabakh-WAR that was going in Azerbaijan. But this did’t stop ANIMAFILM Festivalto invite guests and make a stream! I‘m sure it was very hard to organise such event. I mean it’ s WAR and PANDEMIC at the same time in this country!!! So you can trust this organisation, they are professionals!!! I was happy to participate , and thank you jury to making me a winner!!
