Brownlie's short wins editing award

A shoutout to Morag Brownlie who won Best Female Editor at the 11th edition of the Toronto Women Film Festival for her short Perfect Storm. 

Set on the wild west coast of Auckland during the Covid-19 pandemic, Perfect Storm follows one man’s enforced isolation. Pacing the beach, he wonders if those dear to him will ever be seen again.

Majestic, intimate and moving, this short film is sure to resonate with all who have been separated from their loved ones. 

Featuring music by Taite award-winner Sean Donnelly (SJD) with New Zealand Opera singers, photography by Phill Prendeville, Sam Evans and Sam Tozer, SFX by Harriet Thompson and performances by actors Pita Turei and Te Hookioi Graham Ratahi. 

The TWF festival is an IMDb qualifying festival in partnership with Toronto Film Channel and sponsored by Toronto Film Magazine which lists the winners here.
