Sitges International Fantastic Film Festival : and the Award for Best Animated Film Goes to…

According to the latest news, Tatsumi’s semi-autobiographical story, written originally in Japanese, translated as A Drifting Life, has been named as the best animated film of this year’s Sitges International Fantastic Film Festival in Spain. The movie, directed by Eric Khoo, is telling a brave story of the dramatic life and the events that happened in the middle of the past century, through the war. The manga, an innovation in the drawing and story writing art in its time, is adapted into a move, as you’ve understood, which is also being nominated in this year’s Academy Awards (yes, The Oscars) as a Foreign Film (from Singapore), for the Asia Pacific Screen Awards and was also screened at one of the world’s biggest film festivals – Cannes Film Fest.

Become jury at a film fest. That’s the easy way. Of course, there’s a hard one too – wait for an official release, available in your country. :)
