Over a year on from its run out at SXSW, Mick Andrews and Brett O’Gorman’s independent short Dotty scores another trip to the US.
The film will play the one night only Dakota Digital Film Festival, which reserves some of its slots for local directors. Dotty is one of two shorts on the programme hailing from beyond North America, the other being Philipp Scholz’s German short Steffi Likes This.
Dotty has played a number of festivals in the US already, winning Best Short Film at the Rhode Island and Nantucket Film Festivals.
Andrews also wrote Miki Magasiva’s unproduced short Bullrush, initially supported by the NZFC through Maile Daugherty and Michael Bennett’s Premiere Shorts pod A Collective Intake of Breath.
O’Gorman, who also works as an actor, is presently appearing in Short Poppies, which is playing on TVNZ Ondemand, courtesy of Netflix.
The Dakota Digital Film Festival festival runs 26 April (NZ time) in Bismarck, North Dakota.
