Meanwhile, Brisbane animator Lachlan Pendragon is up for his first award in the big leagues.

Pendragon's film has already copped nominations at the Berlin International Film Festival and Annecy International Animation Film Festival.


His film was also honoured at the Student Academy Awards in 2022, so fingers crossed for the actual Academy Awards of 2023.
