The Burny Bos Best Project Award 2017 was handed out at Cinekid this afternoon by Burny Bos to the project Lucy Goes Gangsta. The Award Ceremony concludes the Junior Co-production Market, the international integrated two-day event that enables financiers, broadcasters and producers to assess new and innovative children’s projects across film and television sectors.
The jury, consisting of screenplay writer Tamara Bos, script editor & coach Ernie Tee and script consultant Linda Snoep, handed out the award to the best overall, international project of the Junior Co-Production Market. The Burny Bos Best Project Award consists of a €2.500 cash prize and BosBros’ assistance in realizing the project.
Lucy Goes Gangsta is written by Till Endemann and Andreas Cordes. Directed by Till Endemann. Producer of the project is INDI FILM GmbH from Germany. Tamara Bos shared with us that she recognized herself in the little Lucy and thinks it’s funny and even necessary that children sometimes do somenthing naughty.
The project that has been chosen by the jury stands out for the heart-warming way it takes us to the dilemma of the main character.
In a clearly structured story we experience how she struggles with the question: are we allowed to do something bad, even if it is for a good reason?
In this movie the extremely well behaved Lucy steals our hearts by committing the ultimately bad action: a bank robbery!
