3 Mile Limit Movie Continues to Win Awards in the U.S

3 Mile Limit Movie Continues to Win Awards in the U.S

New Zealand movie ‘3 Mile Limit’ has won Best Feature Film at both the North Hollywood and Charleston International Film Festivals.

The film is produced and directed by Craig Newland in association with No.8 Films.

3 Mile Limit has also won official selection at this years Seattle International film festival, bringing the total official selections to 13 with 5 wins.

“The film is having an incredible run in the U.S, and to win another two international film festivals for best feature film is both humbling and exciting for the cast and crew who worked tirelessly to achieve the successes the film has managed to garnish.” Newland said.

The film’s director Craig Newland has just returned from attending some of the film festivals in the U.S.

“To hear the enthusiasm and support from those attending the screenings during the Q&A’s was a real buzz and the attention the film has received certainly proves the film has the ability to travel internationally outside of New Zealand. That’s one of the most important things film makers look for when producing a New Zealand film is to reach an international audience.”

Matt Whelan the star of 3 Mile Limit attended the red carpet awards event in North Hollywood in Los Angeles and to receive the best international feature film award.

3 Mile Limit is an iconic New Zealand true story based on the 1960’s beginnings of Radio Hauraki on a boat called the TIRI in international waters in the Hauraki Gulf in Auckland.

It's 1965 and rock music is shaking up the world but not in New Zealand.

Richard Davis is a 23yr old journalist by day, but at night manages a local band called ‘The Yellow Sprockets’. He is determined to break the government's monopoly on state broadcasting and bring rock n' roll and free speech to an oppressed younger generation, and at the same time hold onto the woman he loves.

A power struggle develops between the government and these free spirited individuals who set out to change a system that starved a nation of modern pop music.
