Directed by Golden Horse Best Animated Short Film winner Huang Yun-Sian (黃勻弦) and animation director Liao Pei-Yu (廖珮妤), Little Hilly won Best Animation at the LA Shorts International Film Festival, an award certified by the U.S. Academy Awards. It will compete with 96 films from around the world for the Oscar nomination, said TAICCA.
TAICCA is working with Netflix to promote "A Sun" by featuring it on the platform's dedicated page along with all the other shortlisted films.
Hollywood publications such as "Variety," "The Hollywood Reporter," "Screen Daily," and "The Wrap" will write about the three films in order to help them reach a wider audience, said TAICCA.
