I just got wind of this today. Pretty awesome stuff! Little Thunder played last week at the 2010 First Peoples Festival in Montreal. Here is what they thought of it.
"For its vivacity, humour, and its light, impulsive brushstrokes sketching playful figures, and for the stone canoe carried off like a leaf in the eternal currents of the Mi'gmag legend this film brings to life, the 2010 First Peoples Festival jury awards the Best Animation Film prize to Petit Tonnerre "(Little Thunder)
In other news, Little Thunder has also been selected for the 40th edition of the Giffoni Children's Film Festival ELEMENTS +3 section, in Italy July 18-31, 2010.
