A MURWILLUMBAH filmmaker walked away with a Critics Choice Award from the Aurora Short Film Festival.

Sheraden Robins has won the award for her animated film Rosie O'Rosey's Big Speech.

On Sunday, the 10 finalist films were televised on Aurora Channel on Foxtel before the announcement of the winners.

"Having your work acknowledged this way is very exciting. I am very grateful to the organisers of the Aurora Short Film Festival for allowing me the opportunity to take part in their festival and for having my film available to such a large audience by being televised," an extremely happy Ms Robins said.

We found Rosie O'Rosey's Big Speech to be absolutely charming, beautifully animated, and above all, a uniquely Australian story.

Rosie O'Rosey's Big Speech is the story of a young girl who gives a speech at school relaying the story her Grandfather told her about the time the Queen of London visited Wagga Wagga.

"The standard of films this year was particularly high," CEO of Aurora Community Channel, Phyllisse Stanton, said.

"We found Rosie O'Rosey's Big Speech to be absolutely charming, beautifully animated, and above all, a uniquely Australian story."

The Aurora judges weren't the only people to be charmed by the film with this being its third festival win.

The first being Best Animation at Wagga Wagga Fest 2012 and then followed by Best Animation at Shepparton Shorts earlier this year.

Rosie O'Rosey's Big Speech is also a finalist in the Heart of Gold Film Festival in July.

The future is certainly looks promisting for the up and coming film maker.

She has recently completed the first season of a 24 part animated children's television program titled 'Lucy's Cannon' and last year the first episode of this series toured Australia in two separate film festivals as well as screened at the inaugural Cockatoo Island Film Festival in Sydney.

Earlier this year, another of Sheraden's films was shortlisted to the top 32 in Tropfest.
