TG4 animated film, Sol.
At yesterday evenings Celtic Media Festival Torc awards in Quimper, France, TG4’s film Sol took the prize in the Children’s programme category.

This animated film aims to bring light and comfort to families with young children. Featuring a boy called Sol whose world is plunged into darkness when his beloved grandmother dies, the film explores the different aspects of grief (shock, yearning, disorientation, and resolution) through the eyes of a child. However, Sol’s message is uplifting.

Sent on an urgent quest to find the light that has gone out in the world, Sol’s adventurous journey enables him to realise his love for his grandmother is greater than the pain of his loss. Produced by Paper Owl Films with support from NI Screen's Irish Language Broadcast Fund.
