The Hawaiian short film Kapaemahu wins Animayo Animation Festival
A leap in Hawaiian history and mythology is what the animated short film Kapaemahu show us, fresh triumph of the Spanish Animayo Festival that takes place in Gran Canaria. Below the trailer.
The 15th edition of Animayo, Festival of Animation, Visual Effects and Video Games, ended with excellent numbers: 35.000 admissions from all over the world. The Festival is the first in the world to have converted to 100% "virtual" with 3D guest avatars and rooms to listen to the speeches.

Of the 1600+ projects submitted, of which only 67 selected, the short film Kapaemahu by Hinaleimoana Wong-Kalu, Dean Hamer and Joe Wilson, with the direction of the animations of Daniel Sousa, won the Grand Jury Award 2020.

With this award, the short film also wins the direct passage to the Preselection of the Oscars as "Best Animated Short Film" (Animayo is the only Spanish Festival that accredits this passage), in addition to a prize of 3000 euros.

Made with a budget of around $ 125,000 with a mix of animation techniques, the short film tells the story of the discovery on the popular Waikiki beach of some ancient magic stones linked to a legendary Hawaiian transgender spirit.
