New Zealand’s Best Jury Announced

William Yang (William Yang: Blood Links), award-winning photographer and performer, will join producer Fiona Copland (Topless Women Talk About Their LivesThe Strength of Water) and Michael Eldred, representative for Madman Entertainment, to judge the six short films, selected by Christine Jeffs, at a public screening of New Zealand’s Best 2015 in Auckland on Saturday 25 July.

For our fourth New Zealand’s Best programme, the jury will select the winners of two of the four awards – the $5,000 Madman Entertainment Jury Prize for Best Film and the $3,000 Wallace Friends of the Civic Award.
 
A special jury appointed by the New Zealand Cinematographers Society (NZCS) will select the winner of the $2,000 Allen Guilford Cinematography Award. You, the audience, will also be asked to vote for your favourite short film. The 2015 Audience Award winner in Auckland and Wellington will take away 25 percent of the box office from the screenings in the four main centres. The winners will be announced at the closing night event of the Auckland leg of NZIFF 2015.

Best of luck to all the finalists!
