The McGovern Institute for Brain Research has announced that its feature video, Welcome to the McGovern Institute, has won a 2010 CINE Golden Eagle Award.
The feature video shows how research at the Institute is pushing the frontiers of technology and providing new insights into brain disorders. It was produced by Emmy-nominated John Rubin Productions and won top honors in the “Professional New Media / Non-Fiction” category. Winners of the CINE competition are chosen through a rigorous, tiered jury system, based on storytelling, production value, artistry, purpose, and overall excellence.
Since its founding in 1957, CINE has developed a wide following in the film and video industry both nationally and internationally. It draws over 1,000 entries per year into its bi-annual competitions. Among the talents whose first films were awarded CINE Golden Eagles are Steven Spielberg, Ken Burns and Ron Howard. The McGovern video will join the archive of CINE winners, which can be found on the CINE website.
This is the second industry award given to the McGovern video. In June, it won a Telly Award for outstanding programming in the fundraising category.
The McGovern video, accompanied by interviews with individual faculty members are all freely available in the McGovern Institute video gallery.
