The 34th News and Documentary Emmy Awards were handed out on October 1 at the Frederick P. Rose Hall, Home of Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York City, and several members of the SVA community were among the winners. Assistant Director of Career Development, Patricia Romeu, along with The Loving Story production team, took the award for Outstanding Historical Program – Long Form for their documentary about Richard and Mildred Loving and the couple’s fight for marriage equality during the Civil Rights era, which eventually led to lifting of bans against interracial marriage in 16 states across the U.S.
“This is such an incredible honor!” Romeu told SVA Close Up. “We have been so grateful that the film has resonated with audiences. Now to also have the film recognized and included with some of the most important broadcast journalism today is just too good to be true!”
MFA Social Documentary Film Department Chair Maro Chermayeff, faculty member Donna Shepherd, department guest lecturer Jeff Dupre and alumnus Matthew Akers (BFA 1998 Fine Arts) took the award for Outstanding Arts and Culture Programming for Marina Abramovic: The Artist is Present, which follows the Serbian performance artist as she prepares for her career retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Akers and Dupre co-directed the film, Chermayeff served as a producer, and Shepherd served as an editor.
Vito, which was produced by Bryan Singer (1986 Film and Video) for HBO, won for Outstanding Research. The documentary chronicles Vito Russo’s brief life and his fight for social justice in the gay-rights movement.
