Guess What… We Won!

November 27th, 2014 by

We are incredibly pleased to announce that ‘Michael’, our entry into the Unchosen Film Competition, won the award for ’Best UK Film’.

For us it is a total honour as the Judges Panel featured  the likes of Ken Loach, Nick Broomfield and representatives for Film4 and The Lottery Film Funding Commission.

We enjoyed a lovely champagne reception at the Royal College Of Music in Kensington where we got to meet some incredible talent from the other productions and had the opportunity to schmooze with the big wigs. 

Here are the other winners from the competition:

Best Film (Overall)

‘Yoke Farm’ directed by Tim Keeling. 

Best Young Filmmaker

‘Help’ Directed by Phoebe Ruguru

Best Forced Labour Film: International

‘Tantalum’ Directed by Johannes Richard Voelkel

Best Forced Labour Film: UK Production

‘My Friend Ivor’ Directed by Aleksandra Czenczek

Best Original Music Score

‘Vicky the Musical’ Composed by Sam Jones &

Paul Devlin

Michael will join these other great films and the winners from last year, for a DVD and Bluray release later in the year.  The proceeds of which will go back into helping the victims of forced labour directly as well as being a campaign in itself to raise awareness and educate on the subject. We will of course keep you posted, but for now you’ll have to make do with the trailer. Watch it here: http://vimeo.com/103322462

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everybody that made this possible. Your very kind financial contributions and hard work have meant that we could pull this off. So, really, thanks.
