I'm very happy to announce that The Cat Piano is a finalist in the ATOM (Australian Teachers of Media) Awards, held in Melbourne in October. This is how ATOM describe themselves;
'a professional organisation of media educators and industry professionals who are dedicated to the ongoing development of an innovative and diverse screen and media culture in Australia by providing: debate and analysis through its various publications, both print and online, the ATOM Film TV and Multimedia Awards and a broad range of professional development and training opportunities.'
Our last short film 'Sweet & Sour' was the winner of the Best Short Animation award in 2007.
The finalists should be listed on the festival's website soon.
Also, the screening dates of the film in Sydney and Melbourne for the AFI (Australian Film Institute) have been announced so if you're still yet to see the film, get along and see it in its full 35mm film print glory.
