Two films from the 2010 Chicago International Children’s Film Festival, The Gruffalo and The Lost Thing, which screened at the Festival last October, have been nominated for Academy Awards in the Best Animated Short Film category.  

Both The Gruffalo (Jakob Schuh, Max Lang, Michael Rose, and Martin Pope) and The Lost Thing (Andrew Ruhemann and Shaun Tan) were doubly honored at the 27th annual Chicago International Children’s Film Festival’s closing night awards ceremony last fall:

The Gruffalo received second prize from the Adult Jury in the animated short film category, and was honored with the Best of the Fest Award.

The Lost Thing received first prize from the Adult Jury in the animated short film category, and was awarded the Kenneth and Harle Montgomery Prize for best film by an emerging director.

The Academy Award winners will be announced on February 27th.
