ŽILINA. Nothing Happens has won the 11th Fest Anča International Animation Festival. “The film by Danish duo Uri and Michelle Kranot left a deep impression on us – we were entranced by the atmosphere and hypnotizing pace. The deep experience of something happening is pervasive,” said the panel composed of German TV and Film consultant Agnès Bizzaro, British filmmaker Peter Millard, and film theoretician Michał Bobrowski from Poland. The Anča Award won a trophy designed by ALLT STUDIO as well as EUR 800.
