Icon Films picks up two awards at the 2013 Chicago International film Festival Television Awards

Chicago International Film Festival Television Awards has announced the award winners for this year's competition including two awards for Bristol indie Icon Films.

Jungle Gremlins of Java for BBC2’s Natural World, Directed by Steve Gooder, has been awarded the Silver Hugo for Science and Nature Documentary Production.

Steve said  ‘I’m amazed but chuffed that the judges were so tickled by our lorises. ‘Hugos’ aren’t given away lightly, so this is a fantastic honour for Team Gremlin’.

Million Dollar Moon Rock Heist for National Geographic Channels International, Directed by Jeremy Bristow, has been awarded a Certificate of Merit for History and Biography Documentary Production.

Jeremy said ‘This was a fascinating film to make and would not have been possible without the extraordinary collaboration from NASA and the FBI.  I am delighted that it has been recognised by such a prestigious festival’. 

The ceremony awards night is being held at the Radisson Blu Aqua Hotel, Chicago, USA on Tuesday 23rd April 2013 and all winning productions will be published on the Cinema Chicago website after the event.
