Dutch Drama ‘Kauwboy’ Wins European Young Audience Award

Audiences of 10-13 year olds in six European cities voted on the inaugural award.

COLOGNE, Germany – Kauwboy, a Dutch drama from director Boudewijn Koole, won the inaugural European Young Audience Award.

The film, in which a troubled 10-year-old boy dealing finds solace by caring for a young bird which has fallen out of its nest, beat out Sister from French director Ursula Meier and Belgian drama Blue Bird from director Gust Van den Berghe to take the Young Audience prize.

Audiences of 10-13 year olds in the European cities of Amsterdam, Belgrade, Copenhagen, Erfurt, Norrkoping and Turin watched all three films and voted for the winner on Sunday.

The Young Audience prize was set up by the European Film Academy to celebrate the 25th anniversary of its flagship European Film Awards. It’s hoped the prize will help boost the appeal of European films among younger audiences.
