Marona’s Fantastic Tale received ECFA Award for Best European Children’s Film.
The ECFA Award for Best European Children’s Film went to MARONA by director Anca Damian (France / Romania), an animated film about an adorable street dog, reflecting on her life in her final moments. The annual awards ceremony of the European Children’s Film Association (ECFA) takes place every year during the Berlinale. Owing to this year’s pandemic situation, the ECFA prizegiving ceremony was held in a studio at the Zlín Film Festival during the first part of the gathering’s 61st edition (28 May – 1 June), which unfolded online (the festival is scheduled to continue as an in-person event from 9-15 September). The award aims to shine a spotlight on European children’s films and call attention to quality movies for a young audience.
