Newhouse professor's film honored with Humanitarian Award

January 8, 2015

Newhouse professor Richard Breyer has been honored with an Award of Distinction for his film “Garwin” as part of the Global Film Awards’ Humanitarian Award competition.

The Humanitarian Award honors filmmakers who are bringing awareness to issues of ecological, political, social justice, health and wellness, animal, wildlife, conservation or spiritual importance. 

Each film nominated for the award carries the distinction of being an Award of Excellence winner in one of Global Film Awards’ three sister competitions: the Accolade Global Film Competition, the Best Shorts Competition and the IndieFEST Film Awards. 

 “We firmly believe that film can make impactful changes globally,” says Rick Prickett, competition coordinator. “The Humanitarian Award is designed to give recognition to those illustrious filmmakers whose craft inspires audiences to make a difference.”
