'Golden Oosikar' at Anchorage International Film Festival

I just got back from the Anchorage International Film Festival in Alaska. It was an eventful trip, starting with a missed connection and lost luggage, but ended on a high note with 'Topi' bagging the first prize in the animation category. For the 'Golden Oosikar' award, I received an oosik, which is a fossilized walrus penis (!).

The screening of 'Topi' that I attended went well and there were some good questions at the Q & A after. As I've mentioned before, this was the first time I'd seen the film with a public audience.

I also had the opportunity to meet several filmmakers and festival organizers. And I took lots of pictures of snow :)
