My Life as a Zucchini

Most Popular Feature, Melbourne International Film Festival 
Nominee Best Animated Feature, Academy Awards 
Nominee Best Motion Picture Animated, Golden Globes 
Official Selection: Cannes Film Festival

This Oscar nominated animated feature tells the story of nine-year-old Zucchini, who, following his Mother’s death, finds himself the new resident at the foster home. Here he comes face to face with other children, all of whom have experienced some trauma that has led them there. Slowly Zucchini, and his new friends, learn about trust, community, family, and love.

Beautifully animated, My Life As A Zucchini presents an honest look at the lives of ten-year olds, as Zucchini and his new friends grow and find their way in the world.

Winning the Most Popular Feature Film at Melbourne International Film Festival in 2016, alongside eighteen other awards, My Life As A Zucchini is an emotionally complex and subtly powerful feature.

Not suitable for younger children, My Life As A Zucchini touches on areas that some parents may find uncomfortable, although there is little here that the average twelve-year-old may be unfamiliar with, and the resulting film is far more honest and human for this.
