NEW
Witfilm, Netherlands

Today, European societies are facing a large number of people coming in, seeking refuge and bringing along with them different experiences. The Dutch production NEW makes us experience a newcomer's perspective firsthand. The film follows young T anans, a refugee child arriving in the Netherlands unaccompanied. Through the eyes of the child, we witness the uncertainties of arriving to a strange surrounding, as well as the small gestures and encounters which can be the foundation of successful intercultural dialogue. NEW encourages a shift of perspectives and depicts the importance of empathy and open-mindedness. JvDW Productions from the Netherlands is therefore nominated for the UNESCO-Special Prize 2016.

THE BOY ON THE BICYCLE
Drummer T V L td, United Kingdom

Mounted on bicycle, Ahmed a 16 year old boy from Syria takes us on a 28 minute tour through one of the world’s largest refugee camps in Jordan. The Boy on the Bicycle provides a window into the serious impact of war, displacement and forced migration through the voice, eyes and mind of a child, Capturing the pain of his lost homeland, hardship of sandstorms and rainstorms, and denial of educational opportunity, Ahmed gives us a taste of what it is to be a child refugee. But before being allowed to feel pity, we are tugged by fast moving shots, up-beat music and a burst of hope and images of resilience that entice us to join the movement against injustice and intolerance. The story artfully embeds subtle messages on child labour, gender equity and ethnic tolerance. Celebrating diversity, non-discrimination and teaching us about dignity and child rights through the active voice of children for change, Boy on the Bicycle by Drummer T V L td. is nominated for the UNICEF-Special Prize on Social Inclusion.

BEESTIEBOYS
CCCP, Netherlands

We as Children’s Jury have chosen „Beestieboys“ as our favorite programme in the category 7-10 non-fiction. Although it was sad to see the cat die, there were also funny moments. We really liked the skinny guinea pigs and the huge rabbit, which we had never seen before. We really felt with Tao, when he lost his beloved cat. It reminded a lot of us of our own experiences.

7-10 Fiction

ROCKET’S ISLAND, Series 3: MOUNTAIN POST Lime Pictures, United Kingdom

We as Children’s Jury have chosen „Rocket’s Island“ as our favorite programme in the category 7-10 fiction. From the beginning it was a good adventure and a catching story, even without knowing the whole story. We had a lot of empathy for characters and it was a beautiful landscape. Furthermore we did like the postbox-idea, because it was very unique. I t would be great to be able to send letters to anyone in history.
