Awards Galore

It's been a busy few weeks at the Clover offices. While we've been working on our upcoming films, "The Dancing Boys of Afghanistan" has been continuing its rounds on the awards circuit. The film was presented with the prestigious Sidney Hillman Prize for Broadcast Journalism in New York, received a BAFTA Televison Award nomination and then, in late May won the Amnesty International UK Media Award for TV documentary.

Our films are of course about more than awards, but it's a great bonus when important issues like those highlighted in "Dancing Boys"are recognised!
