‘A Shine of Rainbows’ Gets Cinemagic Children’s Vote
18 Dec 2009 :
A Shine of Rainbows
The 19th Coca-Cola Cinemagic International Film and Television Festival recently came to an end following two weeks of film screenings, workshops, masterclasses, and industry discussions at an awards ceremony on Friday 4th December. ‘A Shine of Rainbows’, ‘Lost and Found’ and 'It’s Not Me, I Swear’ were among the festival winners.

The awards ceremony opened with the announcement of the winning Cinemagic ‘in competition’ films, which was made by the young Cinemagic Jury members, aged 18 and under, who watched and reviewed all the films over the festival period.

The winning films featured Vic Sarin’s ‘A Shine of Rainbows’ which took the title of Best Feature Film as voted for by a children's Jury. Philip Hunt’s ‘Lost and Found’, won in the category of Best Short Film again as voted for by a Children's Jury. The Best Short Film, as voted for by a Teenage Jury, went to Simon Tofield’s ‘TV Dinner’ and the Best Feature Film category as voted for by a Teenage Jury was won by 'It’s Not Me, I Swear’ from Canadian director Philippe Falardeau.

Northern Ireland Arts and Culture Minister, Nelson McCausland, attended the Cinemagic Festival where he presented the Film Club Awards. Speaking at the awards ceremony the Minister said “Congratulations to the Cinemagic Festival which is in its 19th year and has grown from humble beginnings to be the largest young people’s film event in the United Kingdom. The success of this festival clearly lies in the fact that it is designed for and by young people. It aims to capture the imagination of young people in the moving image and so encourages them to explore and develop their creative talents. Today’s young cinemagic participants could be the Spielbergs of tomorrow and I applaud the Festival for their work in inspiring the next generation of film makers.”
