  • I loved being a part of this festival and I'm so grateful that The Extinction of Up got to join the ranks of fine films that were selected for this event. It was that much more of an honor to receive a laurel for Best Animated Short. The venue was delightful and the organizers are dedicated, hard workers with excellent communication skills. I look forward to submitting more films to this fun fest.
