Schlimazeltov! film wins The Coexist Award @ The Insight Film Festival

We are very proud to announce that our short film Schlimazeltov!, directed by Light Surgeon Christopher Thomas Allen, has won the Coexist Film Award at the third Insight Film Festival in Manchester last week. The Coexist Award is offered to any film entered into the festival which best meets the brief of ‘uniting belief’ and is generously supported by The Coexist Foundation, which is an interfaith organisation working to promote, encourage and support engagement between Muslims, Jews and Christians.

The film, which explores the concept of luck, or “Mazel” through a collection of voices from London’s Jewish community, was up against stiff international competition in this festival of films about faith, winning the award from a prestigious line of judges including Gary Kurtz the producer of Star Wars and Amanda Rice, head of diversity at the BBC. Mazel indeed! You can watch it there.
