Animation, News

At this point, the recognition that Spanish animation is receiving thanks to the award-winning ‘Robot Dreams’ is undeniable.

Adapted from the comic by the American artist, Sara Varon, and directed by Pablo Berger, this animated film shows us the emotionality that exists in the strong friendship between a dog and a robot in the Manhattan of a big city like New York in the eighties.

Over the course of a whole year, ‘Robot Dreams’ has been collecting the main industry awards: the Contrechamp Prize at the Annecy Festival, the Audience Award at the Sitges International Fantastic and Horror Film Festival, the Award for Best Animated Film at the European Films Awards, 1 Gaudí Award for Best Animated Film, 2 Goya Awards for Best Animated Film and Best Adapted Screenplay, 1 Annie Award in the category of best independent film, considered the Oscars of Animation.

Pablo Berger’s animated film is missing one last step. The 96th Academy Awards, The Oscars, will take place on Sunday, March 10. Its nomination will compete with great animated films such as He boy and the heron by Hayao Miyazaki, Elemental by Peter Sohn and Denise Ream, NIMONA by Nick Bruno, Troy Quane, Karen Ryan and Julie Zackary or Spider-man: across the spider-verse by Kemp Powers, Justin K. Thompson, Phil Lord, Christopher Miller and Amy Pascal.

From L’Idem we would like to congratulate the alumni of the animation specialization, Mauricio Negreira, Paulina Muntaner and Paula Planas, and the International Master of 2D/3D animation, Marta Rico, who participated in this film.
