The Finding, a short film by Rebecca Tansley, has garnered three more festival selections, including the 19th In The Palace International Short Film Festival in Bulgaria, in the Academy Award-qualifying Silver Princess Competition for fiction. The short has also been selected for the 18th Dam Short Film Festival in Boulder City, Nevada and the Poppy Jasper International Film Festival in California. Written by Tansley and starring Matthew Sunderland and newcomer Ruby Walton, the film follows a teenager’s efforts to reconnect with her estranged father, which forces them to confront a secret in their past. The Finding was shot on 16mm film by DOP Simon Raby, edited by Thomas Gleeson and produced by Tansley and fellow WIFT member Sue Marshall.
