John Lyon’s Charity has made it to the Charity Film Awards FINALS

February 2023

Charity Film Awards

With over 400 UK-based charities entering this year, John Lyon’s Charity is delighted to announce that it has made it to the 6th annual Charity Film Awards Finals! A number of the Charity’s groups have also made it to the finals this year, which will make the glitzy event all the more enjoyable.

Almost 40,000 votes were cast by the public in the first round, and it’s now down to a panel of expert judges to select winners from each film category. 

Aiming to change mindsets and raise awareness of the good causes behind the work they do, the judges are in for a tough time, with an exceptionally high level of competition as provided by the charities’ films.

The Charity Film Awards has a panel of expert judges – which includes high-profile names from entertainment, business, media, academia, and social enterprises – who will be selecting the winners from each category, which is divided by charity turnover, film length and corporate cause.

The winners of the 2023 awards will be announced at a gala ceremony in central London on 21 March 2023.

Nicolas Loufrani, CEO of Smiley Movement, said:Nothing captures hearts and minds like film. These amazing films from wonderful causes absolutely demonstrate the importance of film for charitable campaigning. It’s vital we support all causes – big or small. A huge congratulations to all the Finalists, who should be delighted with the public support for their films through the campaign. We’re incredibly proud that Smiley Movement’s investment in the Charity Film Awards has already generated millions of additional views on these films.

John Lyon’s Charity has its fingers crossed for all the finalists but especially its own groups. To find out more information on the Charity Film Awards, please click here.
