POSITION AMONG THE STARS by Leonard Retel Helmrich has won the IDA-HUMANITAS Documentary Award, awarded by the International Documentary Association (IDA).

The HUMANITAS Documentary Award is given to a documentarian whose film strives to unify the human family by exploring the stories of human beings who are different in culture, race, lifestyle, political loyalties and religious beliefs.

Helmrich’s film has been awarded at many film festivals worldwide. POSITION AMONG THE STARS premiered at last year’s IDFA where it won both the Award for Best Feature Length Documentary and the Award for Best Dutch Documentary, and at Sundance it received the World Cinema Special Jury Prize. 

POSITION AMONG THE STARS is produced by Scarabee Films (Hetty Naaijkens - Retel Helmrich) and HUMAN Broadcasting in association with HBO Documentary Films.

The 27th edition of the IDA Documentary Awards took place in Los Angeles on Friday December 2, 2011: www.documentary.org
