In a recent tweet, Irish artist David OReilly confirmed the 11-minute trailer for simulator Everything had qualified in the category for best animated short film following success at the Vienna Shorts Festival, in which he scooped the Jury Prize for Animation. In a formal statement, the jury stated that the Everything short goes beyond entertainment and has “a strong poetic and philosophical theme.

“It serves a highly educational purpose, including an important political statement, that encourages [us] to let our egos dissolve and gain a new perspective on the world.”
