Hurra!

Bivrost Film won an EMMY i Cannes together with NRK Super for Overgrep (Sexual abuse awareness week) in the Kids: Digital category where our series My Body Belongs to Me was an important part. We are so lucky in Norway to have a broadcaster like NRK Super, that takes children so seriously that no issue concerning children’s lives is considered too difficult to address. We share this price with our colleagues in NRK Super, our team in Latvia and Norway, Save the Children Norway, and the group of experts that empowered us to communicate the complex topic of sexual abuse in a way that children can understand.

And – thanks to the EMMY Academy. This Award will help us reach more children, and give them better knowledge about the body, boundaries and sexual abuse.

The films premiered on Norways public broadcaster NRK Super in 2017, and the following weeks all four episodes where on the channels top10 viewed list online. Today the TV-series is also being used for teaching purposes in schools and kindergardens all over Norway, accompanied by a guidance booklet for teachers and parents made by Save the Children Norway. The booklet is now being translated into english.

My body belongs to Me won the national TV-Award in Norway; Gullruten 2018 for the best children’s and youth program, together with NRK Super's focus days on sexual abuse. The series also became one of top 3 finalists in Prix Jeunesse 2018. And now the series is nominated for the EMMY award.

Because sexual abuse is a complex subject to address Bivrost Film has worked in close cooperation with Save the Children Norway and a diverse group of highly qualied professionals from the fields of education, sexuality, child psycology, law and child sexual abuse. This enabled us to quality-assure the films from several different angles.
