Mzansi can be proud that one of its local films, Zog, has bagged an International Emmy Kids' Award nomination recently.
According to Channel24, the film by Cape Town’s Triggerfish animation studio, has been nominated in the Best Kids’ Animation category.
Zog will compete against other films from France, Brazil and India. The winners will be announced in Cannes on Tuesday, 31 March 2020.
The movie was named Best Animation at the Shanghai International TV Festival and also took home the Audience Award for ages 3-6 at New York International Children’s Film Festival.
It is based on the 2010 picture book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler. It follows a young dragon who wants to win a gold star at Madame Dragon’s school but is rather clumsy. The young dragon instead collects only burns, bumps and bruises. He faces the biggest challenge when he has to kidnap an actual princess.
Fog is now streaming on Showmax.
