SO members Yamin Tun - Writer-Director and Vicky Pope - Producer and Hugh Calveley, screenplay for Cradle have been selected by Lee Tamahori as as two of only 6 shorts (out of 81 entries) to screen in the "New Zealand's Best" programme, the only competitive section of the NZIFF.

Yamin and Vicky's film is called WAIT.
