Leave a print wins Best Film for Children at Animafest Zagreb 2017



Winners of the Films for Children Competition were selected by the jury consisting of Gita ValidžićRožman, Tin Gregorić, Vid Valkaj, Matea Bračko and Jan Kožić, and the award for the Best film for children was unanimously awarded to the film Leave a print (United Kingdom), by Christina Susanna Nerland:

a film that handles a very difficult and inevitable theme in a unique way. It gives comfort and relief after the death of someone close, who, as is shown in the film, turns into the light that surrounds us. We were particularly impressed by the previously unseen view of the gradual fading or disappearance of the beloved person.
