Cinanima 2000 Names Its Award Winners

Cinanima 2000 finished its week of screenings with the presentation of its awards on Sunday, November 12, 2000. This year's grand prizewinner was Michel Dudok Wit's FATHER AND DAUGHTER, which also won the Alves Costa Award given by journalists at the festival. In two categories the international juries awarded ties. Paul Driessen's THE BOY WHO SAW THE ICEBERG and Florence Miailhe's AU PREMIERE DIMANCHE DAOUT both took the Class B Prize for best film between 7 and 21 minutes and Mark Van Der Maarel's THE PINBOARD and Vários' DADDY AND I took home the best first film award. This year the jury decided not to award prizes in the Class D: Long Feature and Class F: Publicity And Institutional categories. One of the highlights of the festival came during the general assembly when ASIFA Portugal nominated Cinanima festival director Antonio Gaio an ASIFA Portugal honorary member, to acknowledge his dedication to animation. Gaio has served as director of the festival for 20 years. Since 1977, Cinanima has been promoting the international art of animation in Espinho, a city located on the Northern coast of Portugal. The 2001 edition will be held November 5-11, 2001. Below is a complete list of this year's winners.
