Ryan Davey from AFL Europe was on hand to accept the award, with the film also nominated for best editing among a world-class field.

"To be honest it was surprising to find out this was even nominated amongst so many brilliant sport films from around the world," Peter Dickson, of production company Dickson Films, told

"It came out of the blue, and for footy and the Tigers' win to be shown in Italian cinemas over the week-long festival is amazing, and slightly ridiculous, but a great thing.”
