Astrid Bussink wins IDFA Special Jury Award for Children’s Documentary

Documentary filmmaker Astrid Bussink, an alumna of AKI ArtEZ, has won the Special Jury Award for Youth Documentaries at IDFA. She was given the award for her documentary L U I S T E R about the children's helpline De Kindertelefoon. The jury of the IDFA Competition for Kids & Docs was made up of Daan Bol (the Netherlands), Rokhsareh Ghaem Maghami (Iran) and Christian Popp (France).

The documentary L U I S T E R takes a look behind the scenes of the children's helpline. In the film, the varied and remarkable phone calls come together to form a single, tense narrative.
