Sam’s short film A Welcoming Place has been commended by organisers of the Lovie Awards.
Sam Saffold-Geri has won the Lovie Awards’ Creators For Change Award 2017. Aimed at recognising the talent of European internet creators, the Lovies chose Sam for his work on his “haunting” short film, A Welcoming Place, which “confronts xenophobia in a manner that draws the viewer into a gothic supernatural setting”. They also credited his use of YouTube as a platform for social change, fostering “a more open and compassionate world”.
The award represents another achievement in what has already been a successful year for Sam. Along with his channel hitting 20,000 subscribers, he also made an appearance at Summer in the City and had a video he worked on debut at Buffer Festival.
