The staff blog of the Symphony in August anime film reported on Wednesday that Hideaki Anno and Khara's Evangelion 2.0: You Can (Not) Advance (Evangelion Shin Gekijōban: Ha) anime film "narrowly" won first place in the animation category of the Lyon Asian Film Festival in France this past week. Akio Nishizawa and Wao World's Symphony in August itself earned second place. Each audience member could rate the festival's films from one to five stars, and the results were tallied to determine the prize-winners. Symphony in August also earned third place in the children's category, whose ranking was determined by high school student judges.
The festival ran from November 3 to 8 in Lyon, France. The other films at the festival included Takashi Miike's Crows Zero 2.
