George was awarded 'Best Emerging Filmmaker' at this year's Jackson Wild film festival, considered by most to be the 'Oscars' of wildlife film. Other winners included the Netflix hit 'My Octopus Teacher', 'Sea of Shadows' and the fantastic 'H20 The Molecule That Made Us. Whilst George was unable to attend due to the Covid 19 pandemic, he and the team greatly appreciated having their film screened amongst such fantastic company. George had the following to say:
"I'm incredibly grateful to receive the Emerging Filmmaker award at this year's Jackson Wild. I wouldn't have been nominated were it not for the hard work and support of everyone involved in the production. Hopefully this award shows there is an increased interest in stories that dare to acknowledge and address our ongoing destruction of the natural world.
It's never been more important for storytellers to highlight these issues no matter what genre or medium we work in."
