DRPG TAKE HOME BRONZE AWARD AT NEW YORK FILM FESTIVAL

We are proud to be awarded Bronze at the New York Festivals TV & Film Awards for our work with Alopecia UK in the Health / Medical category. The 2019 awards gala took place on the 9th April in Las Vegas.

Since 1957, New York Festivals has dedicated itself to creating a brand that stands for creativity and prestige. The TV & Film Awards honours content in all lengths and forms and celebrates the exceptional and innovative programs being created on all continents. The Grand Jury members include over 200 directors, producers, journalists, writers, actors, creative directors, art directors, filmmakers, composers and programming executives who are award-winners themselves.

Alopecia UK is a small national charity working to improve the lives of those affected by alopecia through aims of support, awareness, research and fundraising.  Despite being a small charity, they are the largest alopecia charity in the UK with big ambitions to develop and grow further. 

The fact that it’s now been recognised for an international award is testament to those who contributed to the film-making process, but especially to the inspiring people who took part in the film.

To help enhance the charity’s reach and generate more public awareness around a widely misunderstood medical condition, we produced a documentary film focusing on the personal stories of three alopecia sufferers. The film was intended to be informative and inspiring, whilst giving an honest approach to the condition rather than overly-sentimental.

Dominic Allen, Director and Scriptwriter at DRPG, commented: “It was really rewarding to work on a project that had both personal significance and made a genuinely positive impact for Alopecia UK and those affected by the condition. The fact that it’s now been recognised for an international award is testament to those who contributed to the film-making process, but especially to the inspiring people who took part in the film. It takes pride of place as the latest addition to DRPG’s roster of award-winning work.”.
