EGPAF Video Nets Another Prestigious Award

By Evan Von Leer | March 11, 2013

Last week was a busy one for everyone at EGPAF. On Sunday, March 3, the world was stunned by news of a baby in Mississippi who was functionally cured of HIV, and this past weekend we commemorated National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day. In the midst of it all, we received more good news: our video, Countdown to an AIDS-Free Generation, was recently selected for a CINE Special Jury Award as the best film in their Motivational category for 2013.

It was first awarded a Golden CINE award last year, and is now being considered for CINE's top prize: the CINE Masters Series Award, announced on June 17, 2013.

The video debuted on World AIDS Day 2011 at the Harvard AIDS@30 International Symposium, and was most recently shown in July 2012 at the opening of the 2012 International AIDS Conference in Washington, D.C.

We're excited and honored that our video is earning awards and making a difference. In a week full of incredible news, this is one more accomplishment that would have made Elizabeth Glaser proud.
