We are elated to share with you that DEAR FUTURE CHILDREN has won the 2021 Hot Docs International Documentary Festival Audience Award!
Hot Docs is North America’s largest documentary, and our film has been deemed the festivals ‘sleeper hit’! This is our third audience award since DEAR FUTURE CHILDREN began its festival run and that makes us 3 for 3! We’ve won an audience award at every festival the film has screened at which is a massive accomplishment. It also demonstrates how much the content of the film is resonating with audiences in Europe and in North America. Additionally, Hot Docs is an Academy Awards qualifying film festival. What this means is that our film can now be considered for the 2022 Academy Awards Documentary Feature category without a typical theatrical release. This is INCREDIBLE recognition for such a young filmmaking team and we could not be more grateful for the support of our Kickstarter community.
Thank you to everyone who watched, tweeted, Instagram storied and Facebook posted about the film, your efforts have not gone unnoticed and they’ve carried us all the way into the Oscars race! Cheers and see you at the next festival!
