Presbyterian Media Mission wins prestigious film award
‘Walk,’ created for Pittsburgh GA, scores at 46th annual Houston festival
“Walk – A Presbyterian History,” a video created by the Presbyterian Media Mission (PMM) for the 220th General Assembly last summer in Pittsburgh, has been awarded a “Remi” award by WorldFest-Houston, the oldest film festival in North America.
“On the heels of receiving recognition two years ago with the ‘Come Walk With Us’ video invitation to Pittsburgh for the 2012 General Assembly, I thought it would be a long shot to receive another one for the ‘Walk’ opening GA meeting video,” PMM Director Gregg Hartung ― who directed and produced the video ― told Presbyterian News Service.
“It is a real honor to receive recognition from peers in the video/film production industry for something that is religious in nature and yet is both entertaining and informative."
Hartung will receive the award at the festival’s 46th annual Gala Remi Awards Dinner in Houston on April 20. Only four films are honored each year in each category. The festival runs April 12-21.
