This year, while BFCS went for some of the usual winners in the major categories, they decided to buck the trend when it came to Best Animated Film, handing that award to “Tower” an animated documentary about the first mass shooting at a US School, which occurred at the University of Texas Austin in 1966. Brave choice, ladies ans gentlemen – and worthy of it too.certificate2
