Congratulations to NHN Company members who have been nominated for the hugely prestigious Grierson Award !

The Grierson Awards celebrate innovative and exciting new documentary films. The awards were set up by the Grierson Trust to commemorate the life and work of world-renowned documentary filmmaker John Grierson. The awards were first set up in 1972 and have run annually. In 2000 the Grierson Trust forged a link with the UK Film Council in order to expand the awards and add more prestige, and since then the awards have grown in stature and recognition and are now  "more important than ever"
