Brown Bag Films Turns 28!





Did someone say CAKE? Because we're thinking a cake is in order!

We're delighted to be celebrating Brown Bag Films turning 28 this month. Can you believe it?

This year seems to be flying by faster than the others and we've already hit some incredible markers including the 10th anniversary of the one and only, Doc McStuffins, an Annie Award win for Ada Twist, Scientist, a whopping 7 Canadian Screen Award nominations for our productions and teams (shout out to composers Ari Posner, Amin Bhatia and Kris Kuzdak who took home the award for Best Original Music, Animation), NAACP Image Awards nominations for Ada Twist, Scientist and Karma's World, a GLAAD Media Awards nomination for Ridley Jones, Rockie Awards nominations for both Karma’s World and Hello Jack! The Kindness Show.

We've also celebrated some important launch milestones including the Season 2 premiere of both Karma's World and Ada Twist, Scientist and Season 3 premiere of Ridley Jones on Netflix!

AND super exciting, we've just announced a brand new show for Apple TV+ — Sago Mini Friends!
