MOST PROMISING ANIMATOR AWARD
This award is selected by the festival founder for anyone who shows a passion and promise in the art of animation. Based on sheer passion for the artfom the artistic and creative aspect of the piece is not necessarily a determining factor. Kendell is an autistic young man who is passionate about animation. Animae Caribe is working initiatives with the Autistic Society of Trinidad & Tobago and therefore this is a fitting award at this time.
