We are happy to announce that Reina-Marie Loader was awarded the Humanitarian Award - Outstanding Achievement for her work on the documentary film HORN.
Rick Prickett, who chairs The IndieFEST Film Awards, had this to say: “It takes great talent to tackle the world’s most pressing issues with film and do a great job. It takes an even greater heart. IndieFEST helps set the standard for Humanitarian filmmaking worldwide. The goal of IndieFEST is to help winners achieve the recognition they deserve for the incredible job that they do.”
According to the IndieFest statement, the goal of the Humanitarian Award is to honour filmmakers who bring awareness to the importance of issues such as social, political and ecological justice. The winners are hand picked. In winning a Humanitarian award from IndieFEST, Loader joins the ranks of other high-profile winners of this important award such as Oscar-nominee Liam Neeson, Peabody Award winner Leon Lee and Julia Louis-Dreyfus.
We are very proud of our student Reina-Marie and wholeheartedly congratulate her on this great and well deserved achievement!
