Late last month, Oscar-nominated animator Koji Yamamura ("Mt. Head," "Franz Kafka's A Country Doctor") wrote on his Twitter account that his "Muybridge's Strings" anime short, the winner of the excellence prize at the 15th Japan Media Arts Festival, will be screened at the "Animation Unlimited" program in the 36th Hong Kong International Film Festival, and that it was also selected for entry into the Festival's Short Film Competition. This year's Hong Kong International Film Festival will be held from March 21 to April 5.
"Muybridge's Strings," a joint production with the National Film Board of Canada, was also recently nominated for Canada's 32nd Annual Genie Awards in the animated short category.
