Since Palm Springs, where the film has been shown as an International Premiere, this short has been selected in more than 100 festivals, and been awarded by 30 awards…
In may 2017, we had the chance to win the Grand Jury Award at the prestigious New-York International Children Film festival, award given by Sofia Coppola and Gus Van Sant, among others.
