Nontzeflash 2006 in Bilbao

Last month in Spain was the Festival de Cine Fantástico de Bilbao 2006. CHF covered last year’s festival, in which Mr. Coo took 3rd place in the Nontzeflash Animated Film competition.

This year, ‘Bendito Machine’ took the first prize. This short by Jossie Malis is also up for an award at Annecy.

Several other Flash-animated films in the competition are worth a watch, including:

El naufragio del A4 by Javier Encinas

El provocador by Gabriel Ignacio Cortina

PLOK-The final David Berlioz

The NU adventures by Nacho Rodriguez

Fuggy Fuggy by the Brothers McLeod

Just Say I Didn´t Know by Joe Corrao

But don’t take my word for it – go and watch all of the 174 submissions at the competition’s website.

    ‘Bendito Machine’ is good, a lot of work on it. But for me the best is “Fuggy Fugyy”.

    I agree “Fuggy Fuggy” is a lot of fun but “Bendito Machine” gets my vote.

    I watched all the links but could not make it through “El naufragio del A4″. The credit sequence is slow motion torture. A ’2001: Space Odyssey’ gag may seem humorous until you watch an audience sit through it.

    Bendito machine blows away all of the others aaron listed. I still need to see the others on the official website. Great stuff though.
