SNOWMEN won the Audience Award at the 2011 Dallas International Film Festival, was named Best Feature Film at the 2011 SPROCKETS Toronto International Film Festival for Children and Youth, won the Heartland Film Festival’s Truly Moving Picture Award, and the First-Runner Up Audience Award at the Tribeca Film Festival. The Dove Foundation and the Parents Television Council also gave the film their seals of approval.
SNOWMEN is a humorous and heartfelt coming-of-age story about three unlikely heroes and the winter that changed their lives forever. After a surprising discovery in the snow catapults three small-town boys into the spotlight, the best friends hatch a plan to be remembered forever by setting a Guinness World Records® title. Along the way, the trio battles schoolyard bullies, unites their community and discovers that – while fame may be fleeting – true friendship lasts forever.
Bobby Coleman (playing Billy Kirkfield) says, “I hope bullies see SNOWMEN… I hope kids see this movie that are bullying other people and really realize what they’re doing, that it doesn’t actually help them… it hurts them to bully other people.”
