Canapé Nominated at the 2013 New York Emmy® Awards
CUNY TV received 8 nominations for the 2013 New York Emmy Awards in categories featuring the station’s signature series, among them Canapé, a show focusing on French topics.
Since 1996, the Cultural Services of the French Embassy and CUNY TV have produced the only program entirely devoted to French cultural events in New York and the United States to appear on American television. This monthly half-hour show includes film releases, book translations, exhibitions, festivals, ballets, concerts and theatre productions. Canapé is seen on CUNY TV the third Thursday of the month in a French-only version and repeated the fourth Thursday of the month in an English-subtitled version.
Canapé was nominated in the category Historical/Cultural: Program Feature/Segment for Another Afghanistan about two French photographers who trekked the 180 miles of the ultra-isolated Wakkan Corridor in Afghanistan, sharing their pictures with people from outside the modern world, giving us a new perspective on this country. The show was also nominated in the category Societal Concerns: Program Feature/Segment for JR - Art and Act about the TED prize winning 28 year-old artist JR who makes projects that create social awareness and involve the public in changing the world.
The 56th Annual New York Emmy® Awards will be presented on Sunday, April 14, 2013.
