Hard To Believe Wins Award in Impact DOCS Awards

Hard To Believe has won a prestigious Award of Excellence from the IMPACT DOCS Awards. The award was given for the outstanding documentary film, Hard To Believe, which examines one of the most horrifying human rights violations of our time and questions why so little attention has been paid.


Impact DOCS Awards is in its inaugural year and is the newest member of the Global Film Awards (GFA) family of competitions.  One of the original digital competitions setting the standard for many followers, GFA’s Accolade was named by MovieMagazine as one of the top 25 festivals worth the entry fee. It is truly international in scope offering filmmakers from large powerhouses like Disney, The Weinstein Company, Discovery and Ridley Scott all the way to first time filmmakers and students, the opportunity to receive valuable feedback from an impartial judging panel comprised by highly qualified and award winning professionals in the industry. Often the first stop on the festival circuit, GFA award winners have gone on to win Oscars like the short doc “The Lady in Number Six” and “Mr Hublot” as well as countless Emmys, Tellys and more.

Impact DOCS recognizes media professionals who demonstrate exceptional achievement in craft and creativity, and those who produce standout entertainment or contribute to profound social change.  Entries were received from 31 countries and included seasoned documentarians including Emmy and Oscar winners – especially the “Best of Show”  winning entry – Academy Award winner Louie Psihoyos  (The Cove) for his powerful new film Racing Extinction.   Information about the Impact DOCS Awards and a list of recent winners can be found at www.ImpactDocsAwards.com.

Rick Prickett, Competition Director for Impact DOCS, had this to say about the winners, “The judges and I were simply blown away by the variety and immensely important documentaries entered in our inaugural season of Impact DOCS.  We received a large number of superbly crafted documentaries that will help shape the future of our planet by bringing important subjects and messages to the masses.  As with our other competitions, Impact DOCS is not an easy award to win. Entries are received from around the world from large companies to remarkable new talent.  Impact DOCS helps set the standard for craft and creativity. The judges are committed to recognizing exceptional craft with an emphasis on tackling the critical issues of our times. The goal of Impact DOCS Awards is to help winners achieve the recognition they deserve.”
