‘Letter for Hope’ is a contemporary and inspirational drama featuring actors Don Langridge, April Phillips, Lorae Parry and Jeremy Nelson. The themes of loss and reflection resolve in a motivational conclusion.

Matt Sharp (Eternity, When Night Falls) was cinematographer.

“We’ve proved again we do it better against higher budget productions and that New Zealanders punch above our weight. This is a proud moment and I am honoured to go and accept this award.

The Roxy Cinema in Wellington was the venue for the red carpet event preview screening the film which was professionally produced with a budget of $50,000 funded by CAS’n’OVA Productions.
