2013 Pioneer Award Recipients
In 2013, Dallas Producers Association is proud to honor two exceptional pioneers in our industry: Allen Mondell and Cynthia Salzman Mondell of Media Projects, Inc. Cynthia and Allen have been making award-winning docu-dramas and documentary films and videos for over 30 years. Their work explores a wide range of subjects but always with the goal of personalizing often complex social problems. They’ve looked at different cultures and issues using dramatic re-enactments, intimate character studies and archival footage. Many of their films have aired nationwide on public television, cable and at festivals worldwide. Media Projects, Inc. is a longtime member of Dallas Producers Association and we are delighted to pay tribute to Cynthia and Allen at the Feb 21, 2013 It Came From Dallas show with the DPA Film Pioneer Award.
