Dutch feature film PENNY’S SHADOW, directed by Steven de Jong, has reached the status of Golden Film for more than 100.000 tickets sold, since its theatrical release in the Netherlands on June 8, 2011.

The youth film PENNY’S SHADOW tells the story of 17-year-old Lisa. During her summer vacation she decides to train the traumatized horse Shadow in secret, and have him regain his trust in people.

The Golden/Platinum/Diamond Film Award is an initiative presented by the Netherlands Film Festival  and the Netherlands Film Fund since 2001. The prize is intended to encourage the Dutch film industry and motivate the general public to go and see Dutch films. The total number of tickets sold after a film’s release determines whether a prize is awarded.

PENNY’S SHADOW is produced by Klaas de Jong. The film is distributed in the Netherlands by Independent Films.
