Kevin Sutcliffe, Dispatches editor, said:
'Not only did the filmmakers bring the plight of the witch children to world attention, the film's continued success is keeping the issue of child abuse in Nigeria in the headlines and affecting change.
'I am delighted that an important and powerful Dispatches investigation has been recognised on the international stage...This is a massive vote for foreign investigation, and for independent filmmakers who take great risks to bring us stories that matter and demand to be told.'
Saving Africa's Witch Children was produced by Red Rebel Films and Oxford Scientific Films for Channel 4. Go to Red Rebel Films for details of the production company's last trip, including updates on the children. All photographs courtesy of Red Rebel Films
