    Ooh, I immediately thought the style looked like Song Of The Sea, which was a lovely film.  It's the same studio and director; I'll definitely check it out.

    I admire the artistry of WolfWalkers but I didn't really get into the story as much. Worth a watch. Making deals with small publishers like this is a good idea.

    I find it bizarre that Apple would win the award rather than Cartoon Saloon (https://www.cartoonsaloon.ie/).  All Apple did was buy the rights to distribute the film in some markets.  Oh well, good for them.
