Finalists For 2005 Flying Fives Film Awards

Finalists For 2005 Flying Fives Film Awards

A world where deafness is the nom and hearing is a disability, eight girls one snow flake and skiing that is out there, the baby sitter who might be a witch, and the marionette obsessed with creating a perfect circle.

Storylines from the fifteen films which are the finalists in this year’s Flying Fives International Film Competition. The awards will be presented, Saturday Night 5 November, at an invite only screening to be held at Nelson’s State Cinema 6.

“I liked the over-all sense of humanity in this year’s selection. I got the feeling that people cared about people. I think that at times filmmakers can, in a self-conscious effort to put “art” on the screen, forget the people. This wasn’t so in this group of films. It was a pleasure to be watching and re-watching them,” said Supreme Panel Judge, New Zealand filmmaker Barry Barclay.

The finalists in no particular order are:

Friends No More, Ben Young & Daniel McKenna, Wellington.

Brian & Jessica's Wedding, Chris White, Auckland.

Rolly Dial's Defining Moment, Mike Hallett & Jim Flewitt, Auckland.

Early Journeys of Ballus Tadpolleus, John Russell, Nelson.

Epilogue, Dennis Liu, Auckland.

Ananab, Dean Hewison, Rupert Teynolds-McLean, Paddy Kennedy, Francesca Carney, Wellington

Just Following Orders, Mark Taylor, Christchurch.

Land of the Deaf, Paul Wolffram, Wellington.

Be Thankful, Jared van Berkel and Kathryn van Berkel, Rangiora.

Dreams of Life, David Kvart, Sweden.

Bride To Be, Katharine J McGill, Wellington.

Auto-ma-ton, Jason Howden, Wellington.

The Yoga Room, Ruth Dudding, Gisbourne.

Once upon a time, Lou-Darcie Lewis, Nelson.

A Perfect Circle, Rhyce Barker, Invercargill.

“We have some really talented people making films who like the idea of the Fives and we thank everyone who entered for their support. Next year the format will feature two sections. A New Zealand theme and open section,” said John Bullock.
