Welcome To My Life Wins New York International Children’s Film Festival Audience Award

Welcome To My Life Wins New York International Children's Film Festival Audience Award

Welcome To My Life Wins New York International Children’s Film Festival Audience Award

Cartoon Network Studios’ short – Welcome To My Life has won an NYICFF (New York International Children’s Film Festival) Audience Award for children aged between 12 and 17 years old, congratulations to the pilot’s creator – Elizabeth Ito and to the animated short’s production team at Cartoon Network Studios. The New York International Children’s Film Festival is the largest children’s film festival in North America and is an Academy Awards-level event. Audience members of all ages can vote on the Festival-winning films and the winners are put forward for consideration at the annual Academy Awards.

Welcome to My Life follows the life of a young American monster named Douglas. However, it’s not easy for a monster to live alongside humans; even though to his classmates he appears to be a monster but really he’s a human in the inside. The short is formatted as a “mockumentary” and is an insight of someone’s life who struggles with their differences.

At present, there hasn’t been an announcement whether to say that Welcome To My Life has been greenlit, but winning an award at a major event for being well received by kids and teens in one of Cartoon Network’s targeted age demographics is a step forward towards consideration for it to become an actual show.
