Ten Ten theatre wins international film award


Ten Ten has won Second Prize in the Best Film category at 'The 32nd Catholic Film and Multimedia Festival (KSF Niepokalana 2017)' in Warsaw for their short film, 'Babies'.

'Babies' tells the story of teenagers Annie and Joe who discover that they are expecting a baby. Their response, and the reactions of their parents, change their lives forever.

The film was written and directed by Ten Ten founder, Martin O'Brien, and created for screenings in Catholic secondary schools throughout the UK as part of their Relationship Education programme. The jury - which comprised of an international board of film directors, journalists, actors, film critics, sociologists and psychologists - described "Babies" as 'a very strong short film about life before conception'.

The Grand Prix was won by Polish filmmaker Pawel Woldan for his feature film, 'Totus Tuus', which told of Saint John Paul II's devotion to Mary following the assassination attempt on his life on 13 May 1981.
