We had TWO films, Boy and the World and When Marnie Was There, nominated for best animated feature this year at the Academy Awards. We were shocked and awed and incredibly humbled to receive our 7th and 8th nomination in seven years. It is always an absolute joy to see the films we deeply care about be recognized for all they are worth.

What better film to release in April than April and the Extraordinary World! (See what we did there, yeah we’re real clever). April opened to glowing reviews and remains strong at 100% on Rotten Tomatoes, but don’t take it from us, we’ll let the critics speak for themselves.
