I Will Tell is a growing film festival which takes place in the heart of London every year from 30th August to 9th September since 2005. This year the festival celebrated its 8th year with the theme THE ‘R’ THING, on Relationships, with screenings of over 30 international films, inspirational post-screening discussions and festival activities all on the theme Relationship.
The festival’s Closing Gala was a Tribute screening to Dr Maya Angelou (1928 – 2014) followed by an inaugural awards ceremony where they announce the Best Drama, Best Documentary, Best Short Film, Best Animation and the Audience Award for I Will Tell 2014.
Best Documentary was awarded to It’s a Girl for “its in-depth exposé of a deeply harrowing subject, which a sensitive portrayal of its subjects together with an enlightened look at a complex issue created a powerful documentary that inspires and motivates.” http://www.iwilltell.com/pr.html
I joined in via Skype to receive the award. We are so very honored to receive this award and are grateful to the I Will Tell team for selecting It’s a Girl for Best Documentary!
