Christmas trees are up, temperatures have dipped, and as we flip the calendar to December, it’s clear that movie awards season has begun.

IDA Documentary Awards 2009

Yesterday, the International Documentary Association announced winners in several categories for the 2009 IDA Documentary Awards. We’re thrilled to learn that POV won the Continuing Series Award! The ceremony for the IDA Documentary Awards will take place in Los Angeles on Friday, December 4th.

And last night in New York, Food, Inc. was named Best Documentary at the Gotham Awards. The film, directed by Robert Kenner, will air on POV in 2010.

Congratulations to Robert and all the POV filmmakers! We’re keeping our fingers crossed for you as awards season continues in the upcoming weeks and months.
