Russian animated film Snow Queen 2 received a nomination for the best animated feature film at the 9th Asia Pacific Screen Awards, which will be held in Australia on November 26, 2015.

“We are very pleased that our project was nominated for this prestigious award,” said Yury Moskvin, producer of Wizart Animation, which created The Snow Queen series. Moskvin added that the Asia Pacific Screen Awards are growing in stature every year and are being increasingly referred to as the “Asia-Pacific region’s Oscars.”

The Russian film will compete with When Marnie Was There (Japan), Miss Hokusai (Japan), Blinky Bill the Movie (Australia, India, Ireland) and The Road Called Life (South Korea).

The Gulls, a Russian film that won the best debut award at Kinotavr Film Festival earlier this year, has received a nomination for the ‘Asian Oscars’ in the UNESCO category.
