A Letter to Momo wins Public Prize at Fantasia 2012

August 9, 2012

Hiroyuki Okiura's highly anticipated second directorial effort, A Letter to Momo was greeted with the Public Prize for best animated feature film at the 16th Fantasia Film Festival (Fantasia 2012), held in Montreal, Canada, from July 19 to August 9, 2012.

"Okiura invested seven years in crafting A Letter to Momo. The resulting beauty and visual richness is nothing short of enchanting - a true work of art! Okiura, however, isn't content to offer a technically accomplished film, and he has invested Momo with a storyline that is both funny and fascinating, peopled with finely honed, complex characters. Lively and amusing enough for youngsters and marked by mature themes that will impress the fussiest cinephile, A Letter to Momo isn't just one of the most remarkable animated films of recent vintage, it's among the best films of any stripe you'll see in 2012. (Nicolas Archambault, Fantasia 2012)

Fantasia Film 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. It has been described by Quentin Tarantino as "The most important and prestigious genre film festival on this continent."
