COLOGNE, Germany – Over 600 budding European film fans picked Vincent Bal's adventure tale The Zig Zag Kid the winner of this year's European Film Academy's Young Audience Award.
The jury of 12-to-14-year-old filmgoers from cities in Germany, Poland, the U.K., Italy, Denmark, Bulgaria, Slovenia, Latvia and Malta, voted on the second-annual Young Audience honor, picking Zig Zag Kid from a group of three finalists.
