Annecy Winner

Rio 2096 took home the big trophy from a cartoon fest in France.

Annecy jurors fell in love with Rio 2096: A Story of Love and Fury, giving the Brazilian film the animation festival’s top prize at its closing ceremony Saturday night. Director Luiz Bolognesi will be taking home the Cristal Award for best feature for the fantastical love story which follows a couple for six centuries as they survive several tumultuous time periods of Brazil’s history and into an imagined future where the country is at war over water. ...

You see? Hand-drawn features DO get recognized.

This movie was solemnly ignored here at Brazil by audiences and received a lackluster reception of our critics.
Interesting that it receives this prize.

Good for Marcelo Moura and his Lighstar Studios,, wich also colabored at The Secret of Kells.
