The Club of Ugly Children, directed by Jonathan Elbers, has won the Grand Prize for Best Feature at the Virtual Awards of the New York International Children's Film Festival. The film is produced by Umami Media and co-produced by Shooting Star Film Company.

This is the second year in a row that a Dutch film has won the award at NYICFF. Last year, the Grand Prize was awarded to My Extraordinary Summer with Tess, directed by Steven Wouterlood and produced by BIND Film.
