Almost 200 animated shorts are ready for public screening and voting for Babelgum’s inaugural Animatron Online and Mobile Animation Film Festival. The professionally-produced shorts came from more than two dozen countries and the finalists are up for cash prizes totalling $20,000 and the opportunity to be included in a public screening during the Hamptons International Film Festival. There are four categories: humor, fantasy, real life and minis, and audience awards will be given out in each. The voting period starts September 15 until October 10, 2010 and films can be found at www.babelgum.com/animation-film-festival.
