Black Sheep Studios' 'Home' Wins BAFTA for Best British Short Film

HOME, the short film co-produced by Black Sheep Studios, BBH London’s in-house production unit, Somesuch, and DokuFest, the Kosovan film festival, was last night awarded the BAFTA for Best British Short Film.

The powerful 20-minute short film, supported by UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, launched in 2016 to address the refugee crisis. Starring Jack O'Connell and Holliday Grainger, HOME was shot in three countries - the UK, Kosovo and Albania.

As thousands of men, women and children attempt to get into Europe, the film sees a comfortable English family experience a life changing journey of their own. The film presents a less common route of using an entertainment format to communicate a message, rather than a traditional commercial format.

Written and directed by BAFTA-winning director, Daniel Mulloy (Baby, Antonio's Breakfast, Dad), HOME aims to remind the viewer that refugees are just like you or I - fathers, mothers, sons and daughters – for whom the meaning of the word “home” has undergone a traumatic re-evaluation.

The film was funded and produced by Black Sheep Studios, Somesuch and DokuFest, with donations from Open Society Foundation-London, United Agencies in Kosovo, USAID and the film’s cast and crew, among many others. Coldplay, Dizzee Rascal and Wiley all donated music for the soundtrack.
