KFB_awards_2015  VIII International Junior Short Film Festival Corti a Ponte

Kung Fu Badger has scored a hat-trick at the VIII International Junior Short Film Festival Corti a Ponte!
See what all the buzz is about below:
[vimeo width=800 height=450]

Our environmentally-conscious workshop film Kung Fu Badger has been awarded:

The jury will be drawing their thoughts on a poster for us!

“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
