On Sunday March 18, 2018 the Child Rights Film Premiere Gala was held at Queens Gardens Resort on Saba. This event was made possible by UNICEF Netherlands, Ministry of Internal Affairs and Child Focus Foundation.
In total 9 children participated in the Film Project. The children had the opportunity to create two short films about a Child Right. The theme of the film was selected by a drawing competition. The jury mentioned that it was very difficult to choose a winner. After long deliberation the jury came to an unanimous decision. Commissioner of Education, Mr. Bruce Zagers, made the announcement that the Film “The Terrible Two Sort It Out” won, by one point.
Tobias Hermans, Benjamin Hermans, Agnes Hassell and Trevon Johnson are the proud winners of the Child Rights Film Festival Saba, Caribbean Edition.
