The FICCI BAF (Best Animated Film) awards were announced here at a glittering function at the end of day 1 of the FICCI FRAMES 2014 conference. FRAMES is a three day global convention organised by Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI). It covers the entire gamut of media and entertainment like films, broadcast, digital entertainment, animation, gaming, and visual effects. This is the 15thyear of FICCI FRAMES.
Since 2004, FICCI has been recognising outstanding students and professionals in the animation field. Over the years, the awards grew to include the VFX and gaming fields. Applications come in from all over the world, and the standard gets better each year.
This year, the categories included animation, visual effects and gaming. Out of hundreds of entries, 27 were finally selected. Participants were given the choice of entering in the Indian category, international category or both. The latter option was open to Indian candidates.
As the awardees came up to receive their prizes, they spoke a few words about the effort and passion that they had put into their work. The recognition of their merit came as a well-deserved culmination to months of frustration and inspiration alike. Included among the winners were seven international entries from China, Denmark, the United Kingdom and Ukraine.
The awards function was followed by a grand reception where the conference delegates interacted informally with the awardees.
