OPB Documentary Wins a CINE Golden Eagle Award
Posted July 18, 2006
THE THREE RABBIS, a film produced by Oregon Public Broadcasting, has just been selected to receive a CINE Golden Eagle Award in the Documentary/People and Places category. The Golden Eagle is a national recognition of excellence in documentary and other informational film and video production. The project automatically becomes a nominee for the CINE Special Jury Award, which is presented to the best film in its category.
THE THREE RABBIS recounts the story of three devoted and passionate Portland Rabbis (Rabbi Geller, Rabbi Rose and Rabbi Stampfer) who played a pivotal role in the growth and emergence of Portland's Jewish community over the last 50 years. It premiered on OPB TV last October. Jessica Martin, writer and producer of THE THREE RABBIS, said, "It is a tremendous honor to have worked on this project and for it to be recognized by those in our industry with this prestigious award. It is also exciting that we'll be competing for the Special Jury Award with a number of notable films including Martin Scorsese's film "No Direction Home: Bob Dylan."
