Two Finalists at Prix Jeunesse Awards

Two Finalists at Prix Jeunesse Awards

Two ACTF-supported series have been selected as finalists for the 2016 Prix Jeunesse International Festival.

Comedy mockumentary series Little Lunch (Gristmill Productions) has been nominated in the Fiction category for ages 7 – 10, and teen drama series Ready for This (Big Chance Films: Blackfella Films/Werner Film Productions) has been nominated in the Fiction category for ages 11 – 15.

There were over 400 entries in the festival this year, coming from 60 countries, but only 80 entries made it through to the festival.

Prix Jeunesse promotes excellence in children’s television around the world. The festival is unique in that it doesn’t have a “jury”.  Professionals who work in children’s television as broadcasters and producers will come from around the world to vote for the winning programs after screening them at the Prix Jeunesse International Festival on the 20th – 25th May in Munich, Germany.
