WIFTI Short Film Showcase 2014

Posted Tuesday 10 Dec 2013

Choosing the entries for the WIFTI 2014 Short FIlm Showcase was tough this year. They were all so good we are organising a screening of them for WIFT members.

We had eight outstanding entries but sadly could only select two to send to WIFTI for possible inclusion in the Showcase.

So we are delighted that both our entries have been chosen for 2014.

Congratulations to:

Friday Tigers - Director, Aidee Walker; Producer, Julia Parnell www.facebook.com/FridayTigers


In Safe Hands - Writer/Director, Jackie van Beek; DOP, Ari Wegner www.facebook.com/pages/In-Safe-Hands/147371168688210

Well done to you all and we will be touch about the screening in the New Year.

Next Up...
