It has been announced today by Berlin Film Festival organizers that Cherrybomb is up for consideration as "Best First Feature Film!"
It will be competing against other first-time features in all categories (meaning not only the Generation 14plus). The winner will be chosen by a three person jury, and will be announced at an official awards ceremony on February 14th.
Good luck to the Cherrybomb team! And thank you to Hillary for the tip.
