My First Festival, a Spanish cinema event for children, has awarded Franzy's Soup, an animation by Georgian director Ana Chubinidze, the prize for the best short film for those aged over four.

The 2021-produced work collected one of the two awards in the short films category of the event, with the other prize, for children aged above seven, going to The Queen of the Foxes by Marina Rosset.

Juries of the festival noted the former film's "careful technique" and script, in addition to the "originality of the approach", character design and humour. Their summary also said the work had "generated a rich debate because it admits different readings, both by adults and by children".
