Congratulations to WIFT member Jackie van Beek whose film UPHILL has been selected from 869 entries for the 10th anniversary WIFTI international showcase. Jackie also recently won Best Actor at the Show Me Shorts awards for her performance in the film, so a great start to the year for her and well done.
Jackie and her producer, Aaron Watson, made UPHILL on Fresh 30 funding from the NZFC.
They shot the film on location in Arthur's Pass at Jackie's family bach. It is a story of a woman who retreats to the mountains after the death of her husband, but her plans of isolation are thwarted when another couple turns up to spend the night.
