SKYCITY’s Auckland to Present Short Film Screenings


SKYCITY Auckland’s Bar3 is set to play host to a line-up of some of New Zealand’s most critically acclaimed short films throughout July, in support of the New Zealand Screen Awards 2005. The special screenings will take place on the evenings of Wednesday 6, 13 and 20 July in Bar3 from 6.30pm.

SKYCITY is the proud sponsor of the Best Short Film category in the New Zealand Screen Awards, and Bar3 will be showing two of the finalists Closer and No Ordinary Sun.

Closer is a coming of age drama about a teenage boy dealing with the death of his sister. The film was one of only 10 official selections in the short film section at the recent Cannes Festival. Closer is a finalist not only for Best Short Film, but also for Best Performance in a Short Film. No Ordinary Sun features a man living in an isolated hut who makes the discovery that will change the lives of everyone on the planet. The film is up for Best Short Film, Best Script for a Short Film and Best Technical Contribution to a Short Film (two nominations).

The films range in genre from comedy to drama, to science fiction, documentary and animation.

The New Zealand Screen Awards are led by the Screen Directors Guild of New Zealand and are positioned as the premier film and television industry awards in New Zealand. The ceremony in which the winners will be announced will be held at SKYCITY Auckland’s Theatre on Tuesday 27 July. This inaugural event is about recognising the fantastic achievements of all finalists and the industry as a whole.

The full schedule of screenings is attached.
