My Life as a Courgette, Best European Animated Feature Film at the European Film Awards 2016


On Saturday 10 December, we celebrated the 29th European Film Awards in Wroclaw, Poland (European Capital of Culture 2016).

Pitched at Cartoon Movie in 2015, "My Life as a Courgette" by Claude Barras won the Best European Animated Feature Film prize, organised in collaboration with CARTOON.

The other two nominees were "The Red Turtle" by Michael Dudok De Wit and "Psiconautas, the forgotten children" by Alberto Vázquez & Pedro Rivero. Congrats to all of them!

Cartoon would like to thank the committee members who selected the three nominees and, particularly, Karsten Kiilerich (A. Film Production, Denmark), Marc Du Pontavice (Xilam Animation, France), and Vincent Tavier (PANIQUE!, Belgium).
