The film is a five-minute animated story of the endangered Tuturuatu (Shore Plover/Dotterel), its habitat and survival. Harvey wrote, directed and animated the film, which won the Outlook for Someday’s Whakatipuranga Award late last year.
This year’s edition of the JWFF presented 48 films in competition, from 1853 entries from 112 countries. Outlook for Someday titles have a track record at the festival. Two years ago Natasha Bishop’s Arboraceous won the Young Filmmaker and Animation awards at JWFF.
