Saranne Bensusan‘s stop-motion animation The Hunting of the Snark has been selected for this Epic Animation Comics and Games Fest in Albany, California which runs on the weekend of 28th and 29th of October.
It is by no means the first comic con that the film has been selected for having made the selections at London Comic Con, and Phoenix Comicon and having Won Best of the Fest – Feature Animation at Fandom Fest
If selected, it’d be the first time that the film had been screened in England.

Saranne Bensusan‘s short film Ménage du Trois has been submitted to festivals since its completion and several of those festivals have selected the film, here hare a selection of laurels that it has picked up so far. The most recent being The Maverick Movie Awards, which nominated Saranne again this year after giving her several nominations last year and a win for The Hunting of the Snark as well as nominating her short Mano a Mono.
As we approach the end of the calendar year, festival deadlines start to become fewer and fewer being replaced by actual festivals, here’s my pick for September.

01 Morbido Film Fest (Melies) (Deadline)
