PARIS, FRANCE, January 10, 2022 / – Revolution-Edu the sincere tribute to Sir Ken Robinson is an official selection at the Sydney Indie Short Film Festival Winter 2022. Prior to this recent selection, the film was a finalist in the Festival Paris International Short Film. “It is remarkably gratifying to continue to be recognized and awarded around the world for this important and heartfelt film on educational reform,” said filmmaker Maclovia Martel.

The short documentary pays homage to the life and contributions of Sir Ken Robinson, one of the world’s purest voices calling for an educational revolution. Robinson, who grew up in a working-class family in Liverpool, was the most articulate and passionate voice to empower children and inspire their creativity. From 1985 to 1988, Robinson was director of the Arts in Schools project, an initiative to develop arts education in England and Wales. The project worked with over 2,000 teachers, artists and administrators in a network of over 300 initiatives and influenced the formulation of the national curriculum for England. His three TED talks on the importance of creativity in education have been viewed over 80 million times. Robinson died on August 21, 2020, at the age of 70.

The film Revolution-Edu was officially nominated for Best Short Microphone at the Los Angeles Indie Short Festival. It was also an official selection of SXSW EDU, the Liverpool Film Festival and the ‘Imagine If …’ event founded to honor Sir Ken Robinson and inspire everyone to imagine the extraordinary.
