Press Release from Oneida Indian Nation
Oneida Nation Homelands -- The Las Vegas Film Festival, held April 9-12 in the city known as the entertainment capital of the world, selected RACCOON & CRAWFISH as the winner of the Best Animation prize, making it the 18th festival win since it entered the festival circuit well over a year ago.
The Las Vegas Film Festival win joins the list of other top animation prizes that RACCOON & CRAWFISH has garnered, including the Moondance International Film Festival, known as "the American Cannes," and the Okanagan Film Festival in British Columbia. It was also screened at the renowned Cannes Festival in France in May 2008.
The 3-D animated short film from the Oneida Indian Nation's Four Directions Productions studio uses modern technology to tell an ancient Oneida legend that illustrates the dangers of boasting and deception.
