Children of the Snow Land has won two awards at the Valletta Film Festival! We won the Teen Choice Award for being the best film in our section of the Competition, and the main Audience Award - the audience's favourite film of the entire festival! We're delighted and thankful to everyone who helped to make the film and to everyone who voted for us at Valletta Film Festival.
It was a wonderful film festival, which we felt stood alongside Berlin and Sheffield in terms of film quality and festival buzz. The festival turned the beautiful ancient city of Valletta - 2018 European City of Culture - into a cinema. One of Children of the Snow Land's directors, Zara Balfour, was there on the jury of the feature film competition.

We've just shown the film to the students of Snowland School. After the film, several of the little children came to us and said they had been feeling that their parents sent them away because they don't love them, but now having seen our film they realised their parents do love them.
So heartwarming to know we can help relieve this pain from all the young childen educated away from home.
Please consider donating to our Going Home Campaign, a partnership with Future Village Foundation, to fund children from the Snowland School to go home and see their families. It costs $2,000 per child for this journey (this covers travel costs, guide, porters, food, suitable clothing, shoes, bedding and tents for the cold walk home across mountains). Every little towards this helps.
