Little Lunch Receives CICFF Award

Mockumentary series Little Lunch has taken out an award at the 33rd Annual Chicago International Children’s Film Festival (CICFF).

The Gristmill series has received the “Children’s Jury Prize” for Live-Action Television Program for Episode 1 – The Principal’s Office.

The CICFF festival is one of the top film events for kids in the world. During the week-long event, the Chicago Festival screened over 250 films from more than 40 countries worldwide.

Little Lunch has experienced a successful year for awards, receiving Silver in May’s Remi awards, a Certificate of Merit at the Chicago International Television Awards and taking out a coveted Prix Jeunesse International Award this June in Munich.  

The snack-time series was also nominated for a 2016 Japan Prize and a Banff World Media Festival Rockie Award earlier this year.

We congratulate the team at Gristmill on yet another Little Lunch award success.
