Tue, Nov 9, 2010
On Sunday 7th November at the Second Kids For Kids UK Film Festival "La Dente Tremblante", or The Wobbly Tooth, was awarded the festival Grand Prize in the 6-12 year old category by the the professional jury. The film was also awarded the best LIve Action film in the 6-12 year old category by the Kids For Kids UK youth jury. 

The citation for the film reads:

“A witty script, tremendous performances from all the cast, resourceful special effects - all presented with real French flair. A stand-out winner that is - in a word - magnifique!”

Mike Tait, KFK UK Professional Jury


"La Dent Tremblante" tells the story of a boy who needs £2 to buy a games console. He decides the best strategy is to pull out a tooth and hope the Tooth Fairy provides the missing cash. The film is made entirely in French, and is a surreal tour de force. 


The Kids for Kids UK Film Festival is set-up to promote young filmmakers throughout the UK, running events and workshops throughout the year and also staging an UK national and an International Film Festival for young people.

In true Hollywood style we would like to say thank you to the festival organisers and juries at Kids For Kids UK. Congratulations to all the young people at Kibworth Primary School who devised, filmed, crewed and acted in the film. A special thanks to Paul Stone, the Headteacher at Kibworth Primary School, James Cheeseman & Sheila Critchley, the year 5 teachers, whose enthusiasm, commitment and hard work allow a continuing programme of film production at Kibworth Primary School. 

The production of La Dente Tremblante was supported by the Cine Hubs project administered by EM-Media.
