April was writer and co-producer on both films and also acted in them.

She says having one film selected would have been a thrill. "Having both selected is really exciting!"

Additionally post production is almost complete on her latest film, a sci fi drama called "REM".  In addition to being the writer, producer and part of the cast, she also directed! Shot in Wellington, it is produced by Godiva Productions in association with Cut To The Dog Productions.
