Focus on Women
in 2019, we had 1,416 entries from 80 different countries. There were many great entries this year and it was tough to pick the final 19 films. Many of these were hand-drawn animations which conjured up evocative and believable worlds.
A Word Please
in 2018, we received over 1,500 entries from 90 different countries! The selection process for this year was tough, as we received tons of films with high standards of story-telling and craft. We were proud to showcase the final 21 selected films and hand out the Golden Durian awards to the winners.
