It was a very friendly and well run UNICA this year at Blansko, Czech Republic.
Special successes for the film-makers making up the British programme were: - Pulse by Gage Oxley won best Young UNICA entry and a bronze medal; Mia by Gary J. Hewitt and Not the End of the World by Jack Bennett won bronze medals. The entire British programme was well received by the audience.
