Special Mentioning and Nomination for Jury Prize at Slemani International Film Festival, Iraq

Programmprämie ARD Leistungsmodell – Prize of the First Public TV Station for Outstanding Productions

4 of 5 Stars – Teenager Jury of the FBW – Filmbewertungsstelle “Prädikat Besonders Wertvoll”

The statement of the Teenager Jury:
“This film has captivated the jury from the beginning to the end. The actors played so convincingly that the jury could empathize with the main characters and fevered with them for a good ending. The war in Syria is usually viewed from adult eyes. It is therefore very interesting to see this conflict from the perspective of children. It aroused our admiration that the film is made with genuine refugee children at the Turkish-Syrian border. Because this work is very important, we dedicate the prize to the film Land of Light”
