SOFIA, September 16 (Itar-Tass) — “Mother and Son”, a Russian film directed by Andrei Ushakov, on Saturday won the Grand Prix of the Eighth World Festival of Animated Film that ended in the Bulgarian town of Varna.
A 14-minute-long short film tells about a son who returns to his mother who lives in a remote village and whom he hasn’t seen for a long time. Earlier, “Mother and Son” had won a diploma for sophisticated showing of lyrical mood at the Open Festival of Animated Film in Suzdal which was timed to coincide with the 100th anniversary of Russian animation.
Another Russian film titled “Out of Play” (2011) directed by Ivan Maximov also won an award at the Eighth World Festival of Animated Film that ended in Varna. It tells about the life of old toys which live on the attic.
A total of nine films made by directors from Spain, Canada, Germany, Italy and Hungary won awards at the festival in Varna.
