The ozzie love continues

Midway during this month we received word that Friends, Foes & Fireworks has been selected as a finalist at the Ozflix Independent Film Awards , under the category ‘Best Original Screenplay’.

This announcement has made us very happy here at NPG headquarters, as it’s the second Australian festival to recognise the film in a matter of months. As a bonus, the film is also available through the Ozflix catalogue, ready for worldwide, online streaming alongside other fantastic Australian film titles, from classics to new releases.

Alseen, who plays Summer will be representing FF& at the festival, which takes place at ACMI Melbourne on the 28th of March, and we look forward to sharing some pictures of the night.

Ivan Malekin and Sarah Jayne thank Frank Howson and the festival jury for selecting the film to screen and to allow us to take home some awards, thanks to the venue - a true gem of St Kilda and to the other filmmakers who were a part of the festival just as we were. Thanks to the audience for watching and supporting indie film.
