New York Festivals 2017

One gold and two silvers for LEITMOTIF Creators

11 May 2017

This year’s New York Festivals awards once again honoured the world’s best work in the fields of film, TV, print and advertising. With its long history and entries from more than 50 countries, the competition is one of the principal international award ceremonies in the industry.

LEITMOTIF was the proud recipient of three “World Medals” – one gold and two silver. The new, innovative documentary format “Archaic Festivals”, produced for our client Red Bull TV, sufficiently impressed the high-calibre jury in the categories “Religious Programs”, “Cultural Issues” and “Best Camerawork”.


Thomas Arnold, Managing Director LEITMOTIF Creators: “We are delighted with this international appreciation of our work. With “Archaic Festivals”, our team created a brilliant and exciting format last year, where we tell stories about ancient traditions and rites in our modern world from completely new perspectives. The fact that this unconventional approach wowed not just the viewers but also the expert jury, is a lovely acknowledgement and it motivates us to keep going and step up our development of creative concepts in this direction.ˮ

The New York Festivals awards are not the only prizes “Archaic Festivals” has won. Back in March 2017, the episode “Cascamorras” earned LEITMOTIF the prestigious Spanish journalists’ award “Premio Nacional de Periodismo Ciudad de Guadix”.
