The Flamin’ Thongs wins AACTA Award

The comedy-animation The Flamin’ Thongs has won the AACTA Award for ‘Best Children’s Television Series’ at the 4th Annual AACTA Awards Ceremony.

The Flamin’ Thongs, produced by Media World Pictures and Red Dog Bites follows the disaster-prone plans of the dysfunctional Thong family as they try to put Whale Bay on the map.

The Australian Academy of Cinema Television Arts (AACTA) Awards celebrate film and television excellence in Australia and are the nation’s highest screen accolade.

The Flamin’ Thongs also won ‘Best 2D Animated Programme‘ at the 19th Asian Television Awards in Singapore last month and has been selected to take part in the 22nd Stuttgart International Festival of Animated Film.

This multi-award winning animated series is distributed worldwide by the ACTF.
