International accolades for Illuminated’s 'War Game'

A half-hour animated special from The Illuminated Film Company, 'War Game', has been receiving plaudits on the international festival circuit.
Following successes at the British Animation Awards, the programme has gone on to receive the Silver Griffon award for Best Animated Short at the Giffoni Film Festival in Italy. War Game also won the animation category at the Tokyo Kinder Film Festival (selected by a children’ s jury), the second prize Children’s Award at the International Film Festival for Children & Youth in Uruguay and, most recently, the Golden Butterfly Award for Best Short Film at the International Festival of Film & Video in Tehran.
The film will also be screened at the upcoming commemorative event ‘Some Desperate Glory’, an evening performance of words, music and film about The Great War taking place on Remembrance Sunday (November 10) at Her Majesty’s Theatre, London.
