Fight Girl Wins EFA Award

6 May, 2019

Dutch feature film Fight Girl, directed by Johan Timmers and produced by The Film Kitchen, has won the European Film Academy (EFA) - Young Audience Award.

On Sunday, having watched the three nominated films, 2800 cinema-lovers, 12-14-year-olds in 34 countries across Europe, had the opportunity to discuss the films before voting for their favourite. The results were reported via live video conference to Erfurt (Germany) where the Award Ceremony took place.

Besides Fight Girl, the other nominees for the EFA Young Audience Award were Los Bando by Christian Lo (Norway) and Old Boys by Toby MacDonald (Great Britain).

Earlier this year in March, Fight Girl won the City of Malmö Children's Film Award for best children's film and the ECFA Award at the BUFF International Children and Young People's Film Festival, which took place in Malmö (Sweden).

In Fight Girl, protagonist Bo (12) moves to an Amsterdam suburb when her parents separate. Once there, her neighbour Joy introduces her to the kickboxing club, where Bo demonstrates a natural talent.
