Need for Meat

Need for Meat: A big success in South-Korea

25 July, 2016

Our documentary Need for Meat has been shown twice at Seoul International Food Film Festival held from May 26 to May 31 in Seoul, the capital of South-Korea.

Director Marijn Frank feels a dilemma between her lust for meat but at the same time acknowledges plenty is wrong in the meat industry. In this film, she attempts to find out whether she can manage to shed her addiction by exploring the arguments of both pro and anti- mear eaters.

We have been informed that it was received very well by the audience of the festival and that it had trigged a valuable discussion afterwards.

13 June, 2016

We are happy to announce that our youth documentary  NINNOC by Niki Padidar received the Mo-Award (films for children between 9 and 12 year olds) at the 18th Mo&Friese Children’s Short Film Festival in Hamburg. Moreover, the film was also awarded the price for the best short film for kids at the 4th KINO W TRAMPKACH International Film Festival held in Warsaw.

Parts of the jury reports:

„The filmmaker did a magnificent job . She has found ravishingly beautiful images for an incredible interesting topic. And she succeeded in representing different Emotion in a touching yet credible way.“

„This film can certainly help to help. Ninnoc shows how important it is to pay attention to one another, and to listen to people who are alone. And how stupid the question “Are you OK” can be, if you are feeling as if you have just been hit by a car.“
