Woensdag 14 juni 2017 — Callboys wint Rockie Award op The Banff World Media Festival (BANFF) in Canada.

Callboys heeft zopas de Rockie Award gewonnen op het BANFF in de categorie Best Comedy Series: Non-English Language Program. BBC werd de grote Winnaar met acht Rockie Awards. Er namen meer dan vijfendertig landen deel aan de competitie waarin jaarlijks awards worden uitgereikt in maar liefst 23 categorieën.

Jan Eelen, in volle voorbereiding van het tweede seizoen van Callboys, kon de award niet persoonlijk in ontvangst nemen in Canada maar is vereerd: “Na de winst op het FIPA-festival in Biarritz is de Rockie de tweede internationale erkenning voor Callboys en het doet ons veel plezier dat de reeks ook buiten de grenzen blijkt aan te slaan. Ik dank de jongens en de gastacteurs voor hun geweldige acteerprestaties en de ploeg voor hun tomeloze en enthousiasmerende inzet. Vol moed op naar seizoen 2 nu.”

Het prestigieuze BANFF World Media Festival bestaat reeds achtendertig jaar en ontvangt jaarlijks de absolute top uit het internationale medialandschap.
