AFC congratulates AFC-funded filmmakers nominated for 2007 Dendy Awards

1 June 2007

The Australian Film Commission (AFC) congratulates all the filmmakers nominated for the 2007 Dendy Awards, to be held as part of the 54th Sydney Film Festival (SFF) later this month.

"We are immensely proud to have supported so many of the films nominated for this year's Dendy Awards," said Acting AFC Chief Executive Chris Fitchett.

Six AFC-funded films have been nominated for awards across all categories. 2 Mums and a Dad (writer/director Miranda Wills and producer Sally Ingleton) and The Passion of Gina Sinozich (director Olivia Rousset and producer Sylvie le Clèzio) have been nominated in the Documentary section. Love's Labour (writer/director/producer Natasha Pincus and producer Chelsea Cassio) and Katoomba (director Leon Ford and producers Nicole Donohue and Melissa Johnston) have been nominated in the Drama section. Sweet & Sour (writer/director Eddie White, and producers Sam White and Hugh Nguyen) has been nominated in the Animation section. The short experimental animation Revolving Door (writer/director/producer Alexandra Beesley and director/producer David Beesley) has been nominated in the Most Innovative Category.

These six films join 17 other AFC-supported films screening as part of this year's SFF program, including five feature dramas and four feature documentaries.

"The AFC congratulates the SFF for celebrating Australian film. Some 65 Australian films will screen at this year's festival which is a wonderful reflection of the talent of the local industry," Mr Fitchett said.

The AFC aims to support originality, diversity and creative ambition through the development of Australian practitioners and their projects. The AFC provides project development, production investment and professional development assistance. Funding programs include IndiVision, an initiative aimed at energising low-budget filmmaking in Australia.
