October News: Emmy Award Win, Television and Festival Premieres
The last few months have seen a hive of activity with Virunga winning an Emmy Award and a number of other films hitting festivals across the globe.
The annual Primetime Emmy Awards were held on the 20th of September in Los Angeles. Virunga was nominated in two non-fiction categories, Outstanding Documentary and Outstanding Cinematography, taking home the award for best cinematography. The win increases the documentary’s total tally close to 50 international awards and we’re next keeping our fingers crossed for The Grierson Awards where Virunga is nominated for Best Cinema Documentary.
BBC4 documentary What Do Artists Do All Day? Derek Boshier directed by Zara Hayes had its network premiere on the 24th of August to rave reviews. My other editing work is getting international exposure with Leevi Lemmetty’s CG animation The Red Herring being presented at the BFI London Film Festival, LA Shorts Film Festival, Helsinki International Film Festival, Cinekid Amsterdam and several others. Debs Paterson’s Nazi Boots will next be screening at the Underwire Film Festival, competing for Best Cinematography and Michelle Coomber’s Generation Right continues its festival run at the Bergen International Film Festival, having recently screened at the Cincinnati Film Festival, DocUtah International Documentary Film Festival as well as in selected cinemas across the UK.
My directorial short film The Witching Hour is also continuing its festival run and will next be presented at the Ottawa International Film Festival as well as Dublin International Short Film Festival.
