Nighthawk in competition at 39th International Short Film Festival in Clermont-Ferrand

After being selected to compete at the Sundance Film Festival, Nighthawk has been selected to compete at yet another prestigious festival, the International Short Film Festival in Clermont-Ferrand, France. The festival will take place February 3rd to 11th, 2017.

Inspired by true events, Nighthawk is an animated film about a drunk badger found by a police patrol in the dead of night. The film is a Slovenian-Croatian co-production by director and co-writer Špela Čadež. Croatian names working on the film are producer Vanja Andrijević, editor Iva Kraljević, and postproduction master Mario Kalogjera. The film is co-produced by Finta Film, RTV Slovenia, and Bonobostudio.

Since its premiere in September, Nighthawk has won four awards including Honourable Mention at DOK Leipzig and the Silver Prize at Etiudi & Animi. To date, it has competed at 14 international festivals.

The 39th Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival will take place February 3rd to 11th, 2017. The festival has three competition programmes (international, national and Lab), and each year offers a rich accompanying programme, including this year’s focus on Columbian cinematography and a dark comedy panorama.
