Hubley films have won three Academy Awards, and numerous other film festivals. Sundance's "Spotlight on the Hubleys" highlights the family's short films such as PIGEON WITHIN and EVERYBODY RIDES THE CAROUSEL. Charles Silver, a curator in the film and video department of New York's Museum of Modern Art, said to CNN, "It is a well-deserved tribute. They really broke away from the tradition of cartoons as Saturday afternoon entertainment for children and turned animation into a much more mature medium, opening all kinds of possibilities for other filmmakers to make personal films."
