Chrigu Wins Grand Prize at First Ever International Documentary Film Festival on Cancer
Date:9/1/2008

the leading international non- governmental organization dedicated exclusively to global cancer control, and was held in parallel with the World Cancer Congress in Geneva. The festival aims to raise awareness of the complex realities of cancer globally, to shatter taboos and myths surrounding the disease, and to challenge stigma. Reel Lives pays tribute to those whose lives have been impacted by cancer, and provides them with the opportunity to tell their story to a global audience through the creative medium of film.

"The success of Reel Lives was truly remarkable," commented Isabel Mortara, UICC executive director. "All finalists brought adversity and courage to the big screen in their own unique way. We congratulate all entries to the festival; they championed the idea of celebrating the art of life through their battle with cancer."

The winners were chosen by a judging panel including: Ann Steyn, president of Reach to Recovery International (RRI); Dr Tezer Kutluk, President of Turkish Association for Cancer Research & Control; Cynthia Gelb, health communications specialist at the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), USA; Dr Jeff Dunn, Chief Executive Officer of The Cancer Council Queensland, Australia; Isabelle Moncada, medical journalist from the Swiss National Broadcasting System TSR; and Isabel Mortara, executive director of the UICC.

"It gives me great pleasure to see that Reel Lives has been such an exceptional event and we are proud to be the lead sponsor of this unique initiative," said Dr Paolo Paoloetti, senior vice president of GlaxoSmithKline Oncology Medicine Development Center. "These intensely personal stories have opened up borders in our perception and understanding of cancer across the world and that can only help us all in the ongoing battle to find new and better ways of fighting the disease."

Additional sponsors of the festival include PPD Inc., Loterie Romande, Femina, Le Temps, PharmaNet, ESCA, ASAP,
