Canadian Awards for Court TV


Court TV’s Chasing Freedom chased down three Alberta Motion Picture Industries Association Awards.

The original movie, starring Juliette Lewis, won AMPIA Awards for “Best Drama Over 60 Minutes,” “Best Costume Design” and “Best Makeup Design.”

Chasing Freedom was “inspired by true events and depicts the horrors of life under the Taliban in Afghanistan and one young woman’s grueling attempt to seek political asylum in the United States,” the network said in a prepared statement.

The AMPIA Awards ceremony was held in Edmonton, Alberta, April 24.
