Subconscious Password has won yet another film award.
The animated short, which depicts a common social gaffe — forgetting somebody’s name — as the starting point for a journey through the unconscious, took home the grand prize at the New York International Short Film Festival.
The 11-minute 3D short also won for best animation.
More than 15 graduating students from the Animation Arts Centre were given the opportunity to work on Subconscious Password, with the support of five faculty members, as part of the Centre’s Summer Animation Institute.
Since its release last year, the film has been recognized with several honours including best animated short at the Canadian Screen Awards and the prestigious Annecy Cristal award for best short film at the Annecy International Animation Film Festival in France.
This is the latest award-winning collaboration between Seneca and director Chris Landreth. Previous collaborations include The Spine (2009) and Ryan (2004), which won the Oscar for best animated short.
