Icebergs gets a special mention at the Athens International Film Festival and wins best greek animation at animasyros
Icebergs wins Best Animated Short award at the San Francisco International Film Festival! The jury found Icebergs to be “like looking through the windows of a high-rise — Eirini Vianelli’s short weaves together the small, funny, mundane, and most important moments of its characters’ lives, presenting only snippets of what are full, complex people: the human condition in ten minutes.”
The Icebergs teaser is now on line!
Icebergs got a great write up on Cartoon Brew! "Over at Slamdance, the most memorable and thematically daring short was Greek director Eirini Vianelli’s Icebergs. Composed of over a dozen vignettes dealing with the painful human experience and how we make sense of tragedy and misfortune, this stop-motion gem is based on the book Scenes by Academy Award-nominated screenwriter Efthymis Filippou, who co-wrote films such as Dogtooth, The Lobster, and more recently The Killing of a Sacred Deer. Indeed, Icebergs feels like a Yorgos Lanthimos film performed by expressionless handmade puppets. The deadpan humor familiar to those who have seen Filippou and Lanthimos’ collaborations remains intact in this adaptation. Annoying noises in the middle of the night, terrible jobs, or even an overly happy gardener can push the characters in this short over the edge.
