Bird Island by Sergio da Costa and Maya Kosa has claimed the title of best film on a topic related to work at the International Leipzig Festival for Documentary and Film (DOK Leipzig).

Since 2009, EU-OSHA has presented the award at DOK Leipzig, one of the most important festivals for documentaries and animated films. It is the perfect showcase for artistic approaches to raising awareness of the challenges that people face at work.
