'Harry Potter' film voted best of the decade by children

'Prisoner Of Azkaban' wins First Light award

'Harry Potter' film voted best of the decade by children

Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban has been voted the best film of the past decade in a poll of children. The third movie in the wizard series beat Shrek, Whale Rider and Happy Feet to the First Light award, which was voted for by children aged five to 15.

Accepting the prize at London's Odeon Leicester Square yesterday (March 17), producer David Heyman said: "It's especially exciting and moving to be voted film of the decade by children aged five to 15. We made this film for children of all ages from five to 105 really, but clearly a core part of our audience is young people and to be honoured is a privilege."

Actress Clémence Poésy, who starred as French witch Fleur Delacour in the series, presented Heyman with the award, reports The Guardian.

She reflected on the series coming to an end, saying: "I remember my last day of shooting which was the last day for a lot of people, and some of them had been there for than ten years, so it really became very emotional."
