Telly
June 8, 2012 –
 The Telly Awards has named Cynthia Cohen and Allison Lund as winners in the 33rd Annual Telly Awards for their piece titled “Acting Together on the World Stage.”  Selected from nearly 13,000 entries from all 50 states and numerous countries, Telly Award is the most well-known and prestigious professional video industry award, this is a tremendous honor for the production team including Theatre Without Borders, Brandeis University’s Peacebuilding and the Arts program, and filmmaker Allison Lund.
