The Swiss Film Challenge

28 June 2005

The Swiss Film Challenge

Not satisfied with the America's Cup a Swiss filmmaker is taking on locals and other international filmmakers for the 2005 Flying Fives International Short Film Competition.

Event organizers cannot for reasons of fairness release details of the movie but comment that the judges will have their work "cut out" when choosing this year's winners.

The biggest level of entries ever has now been registered for the Fives, with nearly 200 filmmakers working toward being part of the 2005 Flying Fives.

The awards screening, takes place Saturday 24 September during a blitz of activity in Nelson including the opening of the new Museum and the Battle of Trafalgar 200 Celebrations.

Organizers have confirmed the Flying Fives finalists will be shown on the Rialto Channel later in 2005. Entries close Monday 25 July.
