Crossing Rachmaninoff in European competition

New Zealand feature documentary Crossing Rachmaninoff plays in competition in the 29th Festival International des Programmes Audiovisuels (FIPA) in France this week.

FIPA screens around 130 films and programmes from a range of genres in both competition and out-of-competition. Crossing Rachmaninoff will screen in competition in the Performing Arts section.

“FIPA has a strong tradition of selecting high quality personal profile and arts-based documentaries, so I’m thrilled they selected Crossing Rachmaninoff for competition,” director/producer Rebecca Tansley said.

Crossing Rachmaninoff was shot in New Zealand and Italy by Simon Raby. Sound and music were recorded by Mike Westgate with a 5.1 audio mix thanks to Park Road Post. The film was edited by Thomas Gleeson. Following selection by the NZIFF, Crossing Rachmaninoff received a NZFC finishing grant.

The film has its NZ release from 25 February through Rialto Distribution.

The Festival International des Programmes Audiovisuels (FIPA) runs 19 – 24 January in Biarritz, France.
