Film prize Gate­way to more suc­cess

Augusta Margaret River Times - - Time Out - Therese Col­man

A short film pro­duced by two Cape Nat­u­ral­iste Col­lege stu­dents have won the Cine­festOz Ci­nes­naps Short Film com­pe­ti­tion.

The Grand Fi­nale event, hosted by ac­tors Alex Wil­liams and Travis Jef­fery, at­tracted more than 200 peo­ple.

James Ken­wor­thy and Cooper War­wick’s film Gate­way tells the story of two boys and a dog who find a mys­te­ri­ous mir­ror in the bush. The mir­ror trans­ports them to an­other di­men­sion, where they are faced with a strange preda­tor.

Jaxon D’Ath, of Bun­bury’s Manea Col­lege, was the run­ner-up with his film, Mir­ror Di­men­sions.

The 2018 Ci­nes­naps theme was mir­rors, and 22 en­tries from across the State were nar­rowed down to seven fi­nal­ists.

Ci­nes­naps pa­tron Myles Pol­lard and in­dus­try pro­fes­sion­als Carolyn Con­stan­tine and Ed­die Ba­roo were on the judg­ing panel.

While not a Ci­nes­naps en­try, Bus­sel­ton Se­nior High School stu­dents Veroonika Dan­nock, Jessica Ryall, Isla Whitby and Olivia Hewitt screened their film Cracked at the Grand Fi­nale as part of IndigifestOZ.

En­try packs for the 2019 Ci­nes­naps Short Film com­pe­ti­tion will be re­leased in Novem­ber.
