We’re delighted to announce that The Insatiable Moon has been selected as a finalist for six categories in the Aotearoa Film & TV Awards (AFTAs). Our candidates are as follows:
Best Actor in a Feature Film: Rawiri Paratene
Best Supporting Actress in a Feature Film: Sara Wiseman (congrats to Sara for her nomination for Matariki)
Best Supporting Actor in a Feature Film: Greg Johnson
Best Supporting Actress in a Feature Film: Teresa Woodham
Best Original Music in a Feature Film: Neville Copland
Best Screenplay for a Feature Film: Mike Riddell
Hard to understand why a film with so many plaudits has not made the finals for Best Feature or Best Director, but who knows what goes on behind the scenes? The thing we’re proudest of is that the huge fees to submit our 12 nominations came entirely from community support – our fan base who stumped up funds to put us in the running. Finals night is 12 November – spare us a thought!
