Congratulations to the WIFT members below, whose remarkable short films are being included in the line-ups of prestigious international festivals.

The World in Your Window (pictured above), directed by Zoe McIntosh and produced by Hamish Mortland, has been selected for the main competition at France's Clermont-Ferrand festival, and also more recently at New York's Tribeca festival.

Do No Harm, directed and written by Roseanne Liang (and also produced by Mortland), was the only New Zealand film to be selected for Sundance, and will have its world premiere there.
