Oblivion Island receives the Jury Prize - Special Mention at Fantasia 2010

July 30, 2010

Shinsuke Sato's Oblivion Island: Haruka and the Magic Mirror was greeted with the Jury Prize - Special Mention for the Best Animated Feature Film at the 14th Fantasia Film Festival (Fantasia 2010), held in Montreal, Canada, from July 8 to 28, 2010. The screening at Fantasia marked the movie's Canadian premiere.

Fantasia Festival is North America's premiere and largest genre film festival, taking place in the city of Montreal, and was the first member of the European Fantastic Film Festivals Federation outside of Europe.

"An absolutely astounding feast for the eyes with a sweet, worthwhile point to make about holding on to one's memories, for they are what make us who we are, Oblivion Island: Haruka and the Magic Mirror marks the debut effort in CG animation from the always adventurous Tokyo studio Production I.G [...] Pixar and their American contemporaries better watch their backs, because now Japan's most forward-looking animation studio is playing their family-fare game, and playing to win." (Rupert Bottenberg, Fantasia Film Festival 2010).
