Little Stars: Accomplishing the Extraordinary in the Face of Serious Illness has been bestowed an enormous honor by being named a Finalist in the 2015 Japan Prize.

The Japan Prize International Contest for Educational Media is the world’s most prestigious recognition in the educational media genre. 

Little Stars has been named a Finalist in the Lifelong Learning Category in a ceremony hosted by leading Japanese broadcaster NHK in Tokyo.

Sue Collins, Producer of Little Stars said, “It’s really fantastic to have the project recognized in this way.  One of the main goals of the project is to reach a broad audience and this recognition will drive further interest in the project.”

Little Stars tells the surprisingly life-affirming stories of young people living with life-limiting illnesses. Against the odds these youngsters are making the most of every moment thanks to the support of their loved ones, working in harmony with passionate ‘palliative care’ teams.

Moonshine Movies and the broader Little Stars team sincerely thank NHK for this honor and congratulate all the Finalists named in the contest.
