INDUSTRY ALERT: Australian short makes a grand ending

8 May 2008

The Oberhausen International Short Film Festival has concluded its 2008 program, and the Australian Film Commission congratulates Australian filmmaker Dennis Tupicoff on receiving the Grand Prix Award for his short film Chainsaw.

Chainsaw was one of two short films from Australia selected from over 5000 submissions to screen at Oberhausen. The film has already enjoyed much success internationally with screenings at this year's Stuttgart International Festival of Animated Film. Chainsaw will also screen as part of the Official Shorts Competition at the Annecy International Animation Festival, France, in June.
