Myx TV, the leading English-language Asian American entertainment network, continued its winning season this year when its show, Mom vs. Matchmaker, won the Platinum Remi Award at 51st annual WorldFest for Best Reality-Based Program in Houston, Texas.
Mom vs. Matchmaker is a series focused on finding the perfect match for millennials. Matchmaking professional Carmelia Ray challenges the mothers of the contestants in finding a suitable date for their kid. Each will set up a date in the hopes that their pick will be chosen. The singles find out at the end of the episode who prepared which date.
Founded over fifty years ago as an international film society, WorldFest became the third competitive international film festival in North America, following San Francisco and New York. It is also the oldest independent film and video festival in the world. As one of the oldest and largest film and video competitions globally, it drew over 4,500 entries from over 43 countries this year. Only 10 to 15 percent of entries were awarded a Remi.
Festival winners have at least passed what WorldFest founder and organizer Hunter Todd called as the “egg timer test”. Long films were given a 10-minute view test, shorter works a five-minute test. Some entries didn’t even make the one-minute mark.
Mom vs Matchmaker is produced by Go Button Media with Daniel Oron and Natasha Ryan as executive producers. Myx TV General Manager Miguel Santos is executive producer for Myx TV. The show is distributed by Electus International. It is now seen in 84 countries.
Earlier this year, Myx TV nabbed finalist nods for its shows, Discovering Routes and My Motto: Veterans Edition at the 2018 Cynopsis Short Form Video Festival & Conference, and for My Motto: Veterans Edition, another finalist slot in the Digital Media-Short Form category at the 2018 National Association for Multi-Ethnicity in Communications (NAMIC) Vision Awards, presented in partnership with NAMIC Southern California.
