Three documentaries from ABS-CBN were honored in the 2020 New York Festivals (NYF) TV & Film Awards.
ABS-CBN DocuCentral’s “Local Legends” episode about artist and environmentalist Ric Obenza who dedicated his life to restoring the forests in Davao captured a Silver World Medal. Another DocuCentral documentary, “Alab” (“Ablaze”), about the courage and camaraderie of Filipino volunteer firefighters, took home a Bronze World Medal in the Heroes category.
Completing the winners this year for ABS-CBN, which took home the most medals among media networks from the Philippines, is the episode “Tao Po” (“Is Anybody Home?”) by Jeff Canoy for the documentary series “#NoFilter.” The piece, which won a Bronze World Medal in the Human Concerns category, revolves around the life of a mother caring for her daughter diagnosed with Down syndrome. This is the first international award for “#NoFilter” since its launch in 2019.
Five ABS-CBN documentaries were also named as finalists, including “HIV Rising” by Korina Sanchez-Roxas, “Local Legends: Glass Sculptor” about glass artist Ramon Orlina, “Invisible,” a documentary on mental health, and two more documentaries from Canoy—“Ang Babae ng Balangiga” (“The Woman of Balangiga”) and “Tigdas” for the now-on-hiatus program “Red Alert.”
ABS-CBN has won consistently in the NYF in recent years, including Gold World Medals for the “Elsa and Sarah” TV spot of ABS-CBN Creative Communications Management in 2019 and the “Di Ka Pasisiil” (“Never Shall Be Conquered”) documentary by Canoy and Chiara Zambrano in 2018.
