We’ve been shortlisted for Best Cinema Documentary by the Grierson Awards, which is so prestigious in the documentary world.

It just shows that if you believe in something passionately and keep going then you can make miracles happen!
We’re so happy that so many people are hearing the story of the amazing Snowland children, separated for 12 years from their families for an education.Continue reading
You can now join an expedition with the Snowland children to help them reconnect with family and trek the journeys shown in the film.
Director Zara Balfour is launching a social enterprise to enable more children to be reconnected with their parents upon their graduation from Snowland School.
The not-for-profit, Snowland Journeys, offers people the chance to go on the trekking expeditions featured in the film, accompanying the children as they journey home upon graduation from the school each year.
By going on the journey with the children, trekkers will be directly helping to fund the children to reconnect with family after 12 years away at school.
The first treks will be in April 2020.
For more information, to sign up for a trek, or to sponsor a child’s education, please email email@example.com
