Harvie won the hearts of critics, audiences and the jury at Annecy Animation Festival, with the film scooping three awards, including the "Prix FIPRESC" Press Award, the "Prix du public" Audience Award and the "Prix spécial du jury" which is one of only two awards in the short film category. It is extraordinary for one film to unite critics, audiences and judges, but Harvie's unique charm is clearly irresistible! Harvie also recently won Best Short Film at the Melbourne International Film Festival,the Leeds International Film Festival short animation Louis Le Prince Prize 2003 and the Valladolid International Film Festival Spain, Special Jury Prize 2003.

Harvie Krumpet is the biography of an ordinary man seemingly cursed with bad luck. From being born with Tourette Syndrome to getting struck by lightning; from having his testicle removed to developing Alzheimer's disease; Harvie's troubles seem unending ! Yet, Harvie learns many lessons about life and enjoys its many fruits. He finds love, freedom, nudity and ultimately the true meaning of what it is to be human.

Produced by Melodrama Pictures with the support of SBS Independent, Film Victoria and the Australian Film Commission, the picture features the voices of Geoffrey Rush (PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN), Kamahl (NED KELLY), Julie Forsyth (BABE) and John Flaus (THE DISH), and was written, directed and animated by Adam Elliot, produced by Melanie Coombs, edited by Bill Murphy and sound by Peter Walker and the team at Soundwaves.

Harvie Krumpet's appeal to the audience is universal and this was recognised with the OSCAR for Best Animated Short Film at the 2004 Academy Awards.
