Edinburgh Film festival Audience Award!

Wow! The first animated film to win it!
When I think of previous winners such as Amelie , Man on Wire , Billy Elliot and The Full Monty , it really feels like a great validation for cartoons in general!
We are all really proud.
Paul "Hollywood" Young jetted into Edinburgh to attend the ceremony this morning and ended up with Sir Sean Connery presenting him the last award announced!
Fingers crossed we get UK distribution signed soon so more people can discover The Secret of Kells....
