Fantastime Entertainment is thrilled to announce that its new 3D animated short film, Territory, has been selected as a finalist in the SERIES WEB AWARDS 2023. The film is a powerful allegory about the effects of global warming and human selfishness.
Territory tells the story of two polar bears who are forced to wander the sea due to the effects of global warming. As they search for a new home, they come across an iceberg that seems suitable for survival. But they destroy their fragile habitat by fighting over territory.
The film’s two polar bears symbolize humans who, despite losing their habitat due to global warming, are still considering war to expand their territory. The film’s slogan, “People fight for the territory while the whole planet is sinking into disasters,” highlights the destructive impact of human conflicts and global environmental changes on vulnerable species and their habitats.
“We are honored to have been selected as a finalist in the SERIES WEB AWARDS 2023,” said Mehdi Yazdani, director of Territory, who directed the production team from New Zealand in this project. “This is a prestigious festival, and we are excited to showcase our film to a global audience.”
Territory will be screened at the SERIES WEB AWARDS 2023 in Lima, Peru, on August 10, 2024. The film is also available online at the Dream Expander studio website.
Congratulations to the entire team behind Territory on this achievement!
