Rewards and Festival Updates for August

Film Festivals

We have been really busy showing Kick-Heart on the festival circuit. Here are some recent updates:

We showed our film on July 28th (Canadian premiere) at the Fantasia International Film Festival in Montreal. The festival will finish on August 7th.

Our next big festival event will be the Ottawa International Animation Festival where Kick-Heart was selected for competition. Ottawa is one of the top animation festivals in the world, so it is a high honor to be selected for competition. The festival takes place in Ottawa on September 18th through the 22nd.

Additionally we are pleased to announce that Kick-Heart has won the award for "Original Design" at this year's Animation Block Party festival held in Brooklyn, New York. This is our first award on the festival circuit!

We have also been accepted into some other festivals that we are not allowed to announce yet, so stay tuned for further announcements!

Rewards Update

We are continuing to ship out our rewards to backers. You should begin to start receiving the reward in soon if you haven't already. Currently, we have shipped out the rewards up the the $70 level. Our hope is to get the remaining rewards out by next week. Once shipped, it should take about 1-2 weeks for US backers, and 2-3 weeks (pending customs clearance) for international backers.

      USPS forwarding came through! It was waiting for me at the door when I got home, and on my birthday no less! Thank you Team Kick-Heart!

      @aaron - Yes, I believe that your reward was shipped via USPS so hopefully it will get forwarded. If it doesn't manage to get to you, please let us know at

      Ugggh. I just moved and forgot to update my address with you guys. Are you shipping by USPS? If so it should get forwarded to me, if not i may have to track it down and it may even get returned to you.

      Just wondering, what sort of value are you guys using to declare the package?
