2021 Fantasia (Montreal) Most Groundbreaking Film–Audience Award, Best Animated Feature–Audience Award

A dark and surreal nightmare set in the world of monsters and mad scientists, Mad God is legendary visual effects and stop-motion pioneer Phill Tippett's passion project. It began in 1987, with Tippett designing every detail and hand crafting the set and the puppets. The original material was discovered by a group of artists who convinced Tippett to complete the film after 30 years. A team of 60 people adopted Tippet’s passion project and finalized it with the help of crowdfunding, eventually premiering at the Locarno Film Festival. Every single element handmade, Mad God offers a mind-blowing viewing experience that blends impressive craftsmanship with Tippett’s wild imagination.
