Winner of Kids Kino Industry exchange Award

Kids Kino Industry invites: Stairway to Heaven

Producer Arild Halvorsen
with Directors Martha Antonette Solli & Rune Saeterstoel

Fabelaktiv AS, Norway

Pitched at m:brane 2022

The award goes to Stairway to Heaven for a sensitive approach to a difficult topic of death and loss shown in a beautiful cinematic way with a great portion of imaginative lightness and power of friendship. 

Stairway to Heaven

Stairway to heaven is a TV-series in development, about seven-year-old Timian who has just moved to a small island, and doesn’t really know anyone there. When he is told by his parents that his little brother Oscar has gone too heaven, his world falls apart.

We strongly believe that these kinds of stories should be made and we are honored to include the project to the upcoming Kids Kino Industry forum in September 2022. The project has been preselected to the official pitching during 2022 KKI (27-30.09.2022), as well as awarded with full accreditation, access to all sessions and events, and to special matchmaking with DM invited to KKI 2022.

The award was given by Zosia Horszczaruk, Project Manager Kids Kino Industry and Viola Gabrielli, Head of Programme of Kids Kino Industry.

We are thankful and really happy to get this award. Among all the fantastic pitches it is really an honour to be selected by Kids Kino Industry, and we are looking forward to attend the market in Warsaw in September! It was wonderful to be back in Malmö, and meet all the dedicated people (live and online), and feel the great atmosphere in the kids content industry!
Thank you SO much!
