Happy Eva AFTA

Posted on August 4, 2011 by Mike Riddell

We’re delighted to inform our staunch fans that The Insatiable Moon has been entered into all the major categories for the Aotearoa Film & Television Awards! This has only been made possible by the outstanding generosity of our supporters who believe in the film. We’re a small and light operation that draws on people power, and the campaign to get entered into the AFTAs is a huge demonstration of how that works. And it kind of lines up with Arthur’s philosophy of life…

From here on in, we’ll be in the hands of the judges, which is all we wanted. For a while there the cost of entering seemed an insurmountable barrier. It turned out to be just another opportunity to trust in the magical journey of the film, and the people who love it and are prepared to show their support in such practical ways.

We are entered in the following categories:

Best Cinematography in a Feature Film – Thomas Burstyn

Best Sound in a Feature Film – Steve Finnigan, Tom Miskin, Mike Bayliss (Images & Sound)

Best Editing in a Feature Film – Paul Maxwell

Best Original Music in a Feature Film – Neville Copland

Best Lead Actor in a Feature Film – Rawiri Paratene

Best Lead Actress in a Feature Film – Sara Wiseman

Best Supporting Actor in a Feature Film – Ian Mune

Best Supporting Actor in a Feature Film – Greg Johnson

Best Supporting Actress in a Feature Film – Teresa Woodham

Best Feature Film – The Insatiable Moon

Best Director of a Feature Film – Rosemary Riddell

Best Screenplay for a Feature Film – Mike Riddell

We are supremely grateful to our donors who have gone out of their way to make this possible. Hats off to:

Tom & Sumner Burstyn, Sam RB, Allan Johnston, Imogen Johnson, Images & Sound, Paul Maxwell, Yvonne Andrew, Lynda Delamore, Nikolasa Biasiny-Tule, Lynn Charlton, Alvina Barrett, Marie Marshall, Margaret Bedggood, NJ Green, Mike & Rosemary Riddell.

Thank you all and here’s hoping…
