Nat Geo announces awards for excellence in film-making

In a bid to recognise films that are thought provoking and at the same time interesting to watch, National Geographic Channel has instituted awards for excellence in film-making in India. The awards aim to set a benchmark for the best non-fiction productions and raise the bar of Indian film-making to produce exceptional content for global and Indian audience.

Speaking about the initiative, Joy Bhattacharjya, Senior Vice-president – Programming, National Geographic Channel, India, said, “With our documentary initiatives with Singapore’s Economic Development Board in Singapore and projects like ‘Taiwan to the World’, Nat Geo has already showcased its dedication to developing and recognising talent around the world and providing opportunities to help filmmakers showcase their work.”

“We plan to make this into an annual property and make this an event to remember with an innovative 360-degree activation experience which is bound to make the audience ‘Think again’,” Bhattacharjya further said.

The awards will focus on works of both professional as well as amateur filmmakers of Indian origin in separate categories. Details like the award’s name, categories, application procedure, selection criteria, the jury, events, dates and other information are yet to be announced.
