In 2017, Gil’s score for Chavela was nominated for Best Original Composition Feature Film Score by the Music & Sound Awards. Gil was nominated for a National News and Documentary Emmy Award for his work on CBS Evening News and recently won Best Documentary for his score for Tales Of The Waria (PBS Global Voices). 

    Gil has scored the Peabody Award winning documentaries Between The Folds (PBS Independent Lens), Who Killed Chea Vichea? (PBS) and New Year Baby (PBS Independent Lens), winner of the Amnesty International ‘Movies That Matter’ Award.
