Cryptozoo Film Receives Independent Spirit Award Nomination

Directors Jane Samborski and Dash Shaw’s latest full-length animated feature film Cryptozoo has been nominated for the Independent Spirit Award. The awards ceremony will be on March 6th, 2022. This film was produced by Washington Square Films.  

Already nominated for the Sundance NEXT Innovator Award, the fantasy feature follows a group of Cryptozookeepers who try to capture a Baku (a dream-eating hybrid creature of legend.) They begin to wonder if they should display these rare beasts in the confines of a cryptozoo, or if these mythical creatures should remain hidden and unknown.
