The Highway Rat wins at CURTAS International Film Festival

A lovely summer treat; The Highway Rat was chosen as the winner of CURTHINAS (Best Children Film) at the CURTAS International Film Festival. The event is held in Vila do Conde, close to Porto, and it's a marvelous place. If you like me, enjoy celebrating film making with the odd trip to the beach, this festival is the place to be! I'd love to express my thanks to the wonderful festival team to invite me over and join the closing ceremony and celebrations. I'm particularly happy that the jury in my category was made out of a group of children, 8-12 yr old. It's lovely to hear the film appeals to children outside the UK and that its Christmas themed ending can be enjoyed on the hottest week of the year as well.
