We are very pleased to announce that REPORTERO has been nominated for a 2014 News and Documentary Emmy Award! We have been nominated in the Outstanding Informational Programming—Long-Form category and are in the company of some truly outstanding films. We are especially pleased to be among the P.O.V. and PBS nominees—this year, PBS earned more nominations than any other broadcaster.
Since premiering in Mexico City in 2012, REPORTERO has screened in 28 countries and has been translated into five languages. In the U.S., it has screened in at least 39 cities through our partnership with P.O.V. In Mexico, the film screened in 12 cities through the itinerant documentary festival, Ambulante. REPORTERO recently finished a tour in ten Netherlands Embassies in Latin America, the Balkans, and the Middle East. The film will also stream for free on pov.org from July 21st – August 25th, 2014.
We are grateful to all of our funders and supporters—including Sundance, Ford, ITVS, Cinereach, Latino Public Broadcasting, Good Pitch, Fledgling Fund and Ambulante for making this project and its distribution possible. We are also excited to share this recognition with the entire REPORTERO production team.
The 35th Annual News and Documentary Emmy® Awards will be presented on Tuesday, September 30th, 2014, at a ceremony at Frederick P. Rose Hall, Home of Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York.
