‘Care’ tops b’casting confab

Bird helps BBC take home trophy again

AMSTERDAM – “Care,” helmer Antonia Bird’s 90-minute film about child abuse for the BBC, won the Golden Rembrandt for best program at the Intl. Broadcasting Convention’s Nombre d’Or awards Sunday.

It was the second year in a row that the BBC has taken the Golden Rembrandt. The awards have been held for seven years as a growing sidebar event at the IBC, whose 22nd edition began Friday and closes today at Amsterdam’s RAI convention center.

This year is the first that the awards ceremony, which has focused on widescreen, was open up to all platforms.

“This is a festival about the creation of content for all platforms, not just film, TV, Internet, DVD and certainly not about just one format like widescreen,” fest director Jarlath O’Connell told Daily Variety.

Five Silver Rembrandts were awarded for docus, drama, music, entertainment, enhanced TV programs and convergent formats. “Asta E/That’s Life,” a docu about village life in a remote part of Romania, won the Silver Rembrandt and the grand jury prize for widescreen.

IBC attendance was down this year as a result of the terrorist attacks in the U.S., which prevented some American delegates and exhibitors from attending. Some 50,000 delegates had been expected, up from 45,000 last year, but organizers were forecasting the number would be closer to 35,000 from more than 120 countries.
