Nowhere Boys wins AACTA Award

The action-adventure series Nowhere Boys has been awarded the AACTA Award for ‘Best Children's Television Series’ at the 3rd Annual AACTA Awards Ceremony Luncheon, held in Sydney today.

The Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts (AACTA) Awards celebrate film and television excellence in Australia and are the nation’s highest screen accolade.

Nowhere Boys follows four boys who return from a school excursion to discover they are stuck in a parallel world into which they were never born.

The series follows the boys in their quest to find out what has happened to them and to return home.

Nowhere Boys was created by Tony Ayres and is a Matchbox Pictures production.

It is distributed in Australia and New Zealand by the ACTF.

It is currently showing on ABC3 and schools will be able to buy the DVD from the ACTF in March 2014.
