Accolades for ‘Children of the Wind’
Freestyle windsurfers Tati & Tonki Frans and Kiri Thode recently achieved film star status as the leading characters in ‘Children of the Wind’. This docu film won no less than three awards during the X-Dance Film Festival, namely: Best Documentary, ‘Best Emerging Filmmaker’ and ‘Best Original Score’.
This sports film festival receives hundreds of entries each year. Most films competing for prizes are sponsored by large (sports) companies. Not ‘Children of the Wind’. Yet this windsurfing film has definitely been one of this year’s most successful entries. After all, no other film at the festival won more than one award.
