Boston Regional Emmy Awards

I’m so excited to share with you that today the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences New England Chapter released the 2020 nominee’s for this year’s Boston Regional Emmy Awards.

NATAS announced the nominations for documentary films Monday afternoon and included our documentary film, ‘Restart 2020’. The film highlights the struggles of New Bedford artists during the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic.

Five incredible films make up the nomination pool for this year’s documentary award. We will find out how the film does later in June. Regardless of the outcome, I’m so excited for the film’s recognition. This nomination is my fifth since 2006 and would be my second Boston Regional Emmy award. I’m so grateful for this opportunity and proud of our team’s effort to produce this story.

Nine film festivals in the area are considering screening ‘Restart 2020’ and will be updating information about the selection process very soon. Stay tuned!
