Two Primetime Emmy nominations for Virunga
The nominations for the 67th Emmy Awards have been announced with Virunga receiving two nods, one for Outstanding Documentary and the other for Outstanding Cinematography. The Emmys continue a fantastic year for this Netflix documentary, which includes an Oscar and a Bafta nomination, a Peabody Award as well as over two dozen other awards.
In other news, Team Virunga recently travelled out to the Virunga National Park to screen the documentary both at the Salaam Kivu International Film Festival as well as at the Virunga National Park HQ in Rumangabo.
Watching Virunga in Rumangabo – one of the key locations in the documentary – with an audience made up of the rangers and their families was an unforgettable experience. For many of us this was also an opportunity to see the park in person for the first time. Here are a few still images from this incredible journey.
The 67th Emmy Awards will be held on the 20th of September, 2015.
