Success at this year’s New Zealand International Film Festival

Images & Sound has had a busy year working on fantastic New Zealand short films, many of which were selected to screen at this year’s New Zealand International Film Festival, and what success they have had.

Congratulations to Ross and Beth director Hamish Bennett who has won three of the four major prizes at the New Zealand International Film Festival including Best Short Film, Best Cinematography and The Audience Award. Director Andrew Adamson who selected the six finalists said Ross & Beth was: “A well crafted character study of aging rural New Zealand. Lovely subtle performances paint a sweet, sad and gentle story rooted in relatable characters.”

And congratulations to Abigail Greenwood, director of Eleven which won The Friends of the Civic Short Film Award for distinctive creative achievement. The jury praised the film’s “fluid, effective story-telling with both camera and performance”. And well done to the Images & Sound post production team who added the finishing touches to these amazing short films.
