Fantasia Int’l Film Festival names animation award in honor of Satoshi Kon

The Fantasia International Film Festival in Montreal, and KON’STONE (Satoshi Kon’s company) have announced that the Festival will henceforth be presenting a new animation prize: the “Satoshi Kon Award for Achievement in Animation.” The first presentation of this award will be at this year’s event: July 19th through Aug 7th.

It’s excellent that the film festival has an animation award to begin with, and I can think of no one better to name it after than Satoshi Kon, who truly used animation’s potential to its fullest and created some of the best stories in any medium, period. It’s wonderful that we can both continue to memorialize such a brilliant creator and encourage animation through the presentation of this award in years to come.
