Last night, Grief Encounter attended the Charity Film Awards 2023, as a finalist in their category with their latest appeal film “Out of Darkness”. The Charity Film Awards, in collaboration with Smiley Movement, aim to recognise small, medium sized and large turnover charities, raising awareness for important causes.

The event, with over 800 guests from the charity sector, was held at The Odeon Luxe, London. All winning films, as voted by the judging panel, were shown throughout the evening. To close the evening, the People’s Choice Awards were announced, per category – the winning films as voted by the general public.

We were thrilled to win the People’s Choice 2023 award, recognising the film in our category as most voted for by you, our supporters! Anna Hoffman, Head of Marketing, and Samantha Fogelman, Head of PR and Comms, were there to accept the award.

“We are so thrilled to have won the People’s Choice Award, a really special award voted for by our followers, supporters and the general public, recognising the vital work we do every day. It means so much to us as a charity here to support children and young people, when they need it most. Huge thanks to Ethan, Amelia-Rose, Cameron and Olivia, as without them we wouldn’t be standing here. This film is all about their stories, and we dedicate this award to them, and all of the other children who so bravely share their stories with us”, said the team.
