PARKED was awarded the Main Award for best film at Mannheim-Heidelberg International Film Festival on the festival's closing night, Sunday 20th November. Lead actor Colin Morgan and one of the producers, Dominic Wright, were there to receive the award, after having presented the film and taken part in public Q&As in Mannheim and Heidelberg. The festival was the film's German premiere.
"The jury was very much moved by the mastery of storytelling of a first time director about the unexpected friendship of two opposite characters. In a subtle way the narrative unfolds underestimated values of marginalized people in a bureaucratic society that increasingly fails to recover and maintain human dignity." - Mannheim-Heidelberg IFF
