On 15 March, BAFTA hosted the inaugural Charity Film Awards, the first UK film awards wholly devoted to charity commissions.
S.A.L.V.E. International took the grand prize in the £100k to £500k category for their film, Support and Love Via Education. We are so proud to have donated and produced this film for S.A.L.V.E. as part of our annual small charity initiative in 2015/16. The initiative helps small charities reach new audiences and raise essential funds with £10,000 worth of content strategy and production.

We are really proud that this film was recognised at these awards and especially proud of the impact it has had, and will continue to have, for such a brilliant small charity. Here’s S.A.L.V.E. International telling Charity Film Awards about what it meant to have won our competition.
Their aim is threefold: to recognise and reward best creative practice; to facilitate charities thinking more clearly about their filmmaking, by giving them a benchmark to measure it against; and to increase exposure to the films themselves and the causes behind them.
