We are delighted to announce another prize for our environmentally themed workshop films, this time Bonfire brings home 3rd Prize from the 11th Beijing Film Festival for Youth Welfare!
We are very grateful for the beautiful plaque and presentation certificate, and we’re sure the school will have it proudly on display soon enough!
Bonfire was produced in cooperation with Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council and the 6th class of Rathmichael Primary School in October 2013. It has screened at numerous international festivals, and will also be screening at the upcoming Kratka Forma film festival in Serbia alongside its partner in crime Kung Fu Badger.
Many thanks again to Ciarda and the FreshFilmFestival crew for their invaluable festival wrangling!

Our environmentally-conscious workshop film Kung Fu Badger has been awarded:
the LITTLE JURY AWARD (5y)
The jury will be drawing their thoughts on a poster for us!
the YOUNG JURY AWARD (10y)
“Disegni accurati, ottima colonna sonora. Storia divertente, significativa e commovente. La storia dà un messaggio chiaro e condivisibile: inquinare è dannoso per l’ambiente. Se continuiamo ad inquinare l’ambiente si vendicherà. Sfruttare gli animali a scopo di lucro è dannoso quanto inquinare. Capacità di lanciare un messaggio importante divertendo.”
And finally the YOUNG AUDIENCE AWARD(5-10y)!
Many thanks again to Festival Corti a Ponte and congratulations to the students of Coláiste Eoin, Stillorgan on the first of many wins for their film!
This film was funded by Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council’s Anti-litter campaign www.dlrcoco.ie
