Nim film gala

The overall winner in Nimbins 39 Hour Short Film Festival was Plan B by Nimbin Central School students and ex-students. Receiving their prize at the awards night at the Nimbin Bush Theatre recently were (l-r) Simon Moore, Mitch Doyle, Peter Horideke and Amy-Kate Dillon.

It was like the Oscars. Flashing cameras and thunderous applause. But it was in Nimbin. It was the screening and awards presentation for the Nimbin 39 Hour Short Film Festival a film comp where filmmakers had only 39 hours to produce a short film. With $3500 worth of prizes, there was a huge response to this inaugural event and plans are afoot for an even bigger one next year.

Overall winner was the comedy Plan B directed by Simon Moore. Best overall production was The Good Housewife by Hayley Hollis and Suellen Howarth.

Geoff Moxhams film The Sun Shines On Everyone won Best Environmental Film.

Judgement by Murwillumbah students and directed by Tom Macpherson won Best Youth Film.

Best Youth Film with an Indigenous Director went to a drama/comedy/documentary Sk8 Park Tragedy about the closed and unfinished Nimbin Skate Park.

Best Youth Comedy went to Picnic at Hanging Rock, produced by a team of young people all under 12.
