TORONTO – Winnipeg movie maker Guy Maddin and Toronto-based animator and video artist Nick Fox-Gieg have won film awards at the South by Southwest festival in Texas.

And Fox-Gieg won the jury award for best animated short for “The Orange,” a humorous and surreal tale of the history of the citrus fruit.

“Night Mayor” was produced by Joe MacDonald of a Winnipeg branch of the National Film Board, which won a Web Award at the festival for its Waterlife Interactive site.
