Flying Fives 2005 Launch

Entries are now being called for the Flying Fives 2005 International Film awards to be held in September 2005 in Nelson New Zealand.

The 2005 Flying Fives follow the successful launch of the awards in 2003. Successful entries were attracted from as far afield as London, Athens & Chicago

“We want to encourage people to use the language of film in a different way where originality has no limits.”

The Flying 5 Film Awards are an independent New Zealand film competition giving entrants just five minutes to tell an impacting story on film or video.

“As with year one we hope the films which make the finals will be exposed to potential production partners.

“Flying Fives 2005 will be offering a major industry related prize and in addition all the finalists will be screened in a special presentation on the Rialto Channel.

“Plus we are planning to offer a creative escape to a secret location in the Nelson Tasman area. And for the first time the Flying Fives will be awarding the inaugural Golden Beret to the year’s best humour piece.”
