Double WIN at Indie Fest, Film Awards – NZ Film

16 June 2014

Double WIN at Indie Fest, Film Awards – NZ Film

Film and Stage Producer/Director Craig Hutchison, is pleased to announce that two short films that he and his company (CAS’n’OVA PRODUCTIONS) shot in Wellington last year have both received ‘AWARD of MERIT’ at THE INDIE FEST (www.theindiefest.com).

‘Letter For Hope’ and ‘Utu Pihikete’ are both short films written by April Phillips.

Raquel Roderick was the director of Letter For Hope, with Craig being the 2nd Director. Utu Pihikete was directed by Craig.

As Executive Producer for both, Craig Hutchison said “It was an honour to produce and direct two of Aprils works, and especially now being recognised internationally for our work. This is the second award we have received. The first being an honourable mention award at the recent Sunset Festival in Los Angeles.”

The Kiwi productions stood alongside over 100 other awards from around the world.

The Indie Fest recognizes film professionals who demonstrate exceptional achievement in craft and creativity, and those who produce standout entertainment or contribute to profound social change. Entries are judged by highly qualified professionals in the film industry.

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 be a part of this industry and receive the recognition for these two amazing stories.”

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