Socially Responsible Conservationist Award – Leonardo DiCaprio

New Media Film Festival was proud and honored to present Leonardo DiCaprio with the Socially Responsible Conservationist Award for his Conservation dedication and efforts via Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation – Dedicated to protecting Earth’s last wild places and implementing solutions that create a harmonious relationship between humanity and the natural world. This recognition stems from Leonardo DiCaprio’s opening scenes in Worst Shark Attack Ever which was programmed in the SRC – Socially Responsible Content Category in 2015. So, it is fitting that the Director of this film and International Surfing Champion, Veronica Grey accepted the award on behalf of Leonardo DiCaprio.

“As an African American filmmaker I’ve never felt more relaxed or inspired at a film festival. While #OscarsSoWhite is trending in Hollywood the New Media Film Festival 2016 has quietly shown the world how to honor content makers from across every discipline imaginable – and every ethnicity – without sacrificing its core identity. That’s an amazing feat, worthy of imitation. I think the New Media Film Festival is the future of film festivals. Congratulations!”

John Carstarphen
Independent Producer/Writer/Director
“The New Media Film Festival seemed like an outlier when it started in 2009, with their strange categories, web series, 3D storytelling, digital comics, now all of a sudden these phrases are the new normal. The NMFF is always looking to the future, challenging creators, the market and the audience to discover new storytelling. There are not many festivals pushing the limits – go NMFF!”
